About

Our Forensic Psychology program at University of Houston Victoria prepares students to become licensed mental health workers in the field of forensics. We prepare students for forensic psychology jobs working with forensic populations. 

Overview

We send our students out into the real world through practicum.  This is an incredible experience for our students and for the sites, as well. Our students apply theory and techniques they've learned in the real world at each site. 

We often get feedback from the practicum sites with how impressed they are with our students.  Our Forensic Psychology students often stay at their sites after practicum, graduation, and as employees.  The practicum site supervisors are impressed with the skills and knowledge of our students.
