The Montclair State University's Department of Psychology offers a Clinical Psychology - Clinical Forensic Psychology concentration within the MA program in Clinical Psychology. 


Key facts:

  • The Forensic Psychology concentration at the Montclair State University is designed to prepare students to offer master’s level clinical services to legal system-involved populations in settings that do not require licensure. Such settings include, but are not limited to, mental health and drug court settings, offender rehabilitation programs, child and family advocacy settings and bona fide public service agencies exempted by state boards of psychological examiners for non-doctoral providers. Students also receive opportunities for clinical and research experiences to prepare them for doctoral study should they choose that path.
  • In keeping with our Clinical Psychology - Clinical Forensic Psychology MA program’s overall child/adolescent focus, the forensic concentration places an emphasis on child, adolescent and family issues such as domestic violence, child abuse and neglect, and juvenile offender assessment, treatment and rehabilitation.
