About

Some specific areas in which psychology has an impact on the legal profession include memory and testimony, product testing and producer liability, psychological testing, competency and the insanity defense, and interpretation of statistical results. The Psychology and Law program is offered by Catholic University of America.

Overview

Though the coursework is similar to that for the general Psychology and Law degree, only 15 credits of electives are required. The M.A. offered by Catholic University of America is awarded in conjunction with the J.D. after 21 credits of coursework, approval of a topic paper, and successful completion of the comprehensive examinations.

The D.C. Advantage

With a view of the U.S. Capital from O'Boyle Hall, the Psychology Department's location and proximity to major research institutions, government agencies, and non-profits in Washington, D.C. are invaluable

Off-campus research internships are available at major labs nearby, including Children’s National Medical Center, Washington VA Medical Center, Georgetown University Medical School, and the National Institutes of Health. A wide range of non-research internships are also available at national societies such as the American Psychological Association, American Association of Suicidology, and National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, as well as at local agencies such as the FBI, crisis hotlines, centers for families and children, and outreach services for autistic children.
