This Forensic and Legal Psychology programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam will give you insight into why people misbehave and commit crimes, what the concept of criminal irresponsibility is, and how forensic patients need to be treated. Besides these typical forensic topics, the programme offers insight into legal psychological topics such as deception detection and legal decision making.
This master will make you familiar with forensic and legal psychology topics. There is some room for choice.
If you aim at becoming a clinical forensic psychologist, you should choose a relevant practical internship in the second semester. Note that the number of clinical practical internships is limited, and may require some proficiency at speaking Dutch. Further note that to be successful in your later career as a clinical forensic psychologist, you should have a bachelor degree in clinical psychology. This is so to meet the requirements for the postdoctoral educational programme for GZ-psycholoog.
