About

This Forensic and Legal Psychology programme at Erasmus University Rotterdam focuses on psychological contributions to both forensic and legal contexts.

Overview

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.

Career

This master will make you familiar with forensic and legal psychology topics. There is some room for choice.
