    • www.helpingpsychology.com Criminal Psychology Master’s Degree: Steps to Success
    • www.helpingpsychology.com The increasingly popular master’s degree in criminal psychology can lead to a fulfilling career whose high-demand job market is filled with unique opportunities.  Forensic  psychology  is presently a rich area of hire for criminal psychology master’s degree graduates. 
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Here we provide helpful information on the steps involved in earning a degree in criminal psychology, as well as some important points on the reality of this fascinating profession-plus what one can expect to encounter administratively and emotionally on a daily basis.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com It’s not CSI: What to know before jumping in…
      • The picture drawn by hit TV shows of criminal psychologists is a
      • romanticized one.
      • Even experienced criminal psychologists don’t perform crime
      • scene analyses all day; filing and writing reports takes up a large
      • part of the week for most professionals.
      • Criminal psychologists often visit various prisons and clinics to
      • evaluate inmates or give court-ordered therapy to convicted
      • criminals.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Because of the nature of these environments, criminal psychologists invariably face the bureaucracy of the legal world. 
      • This job can be extremely emotionally demanding, as clients
      • range from repeated sex offenders to abused persons.
      • This shouldn’t deter one’s hopes, as most criminal psychologists
      • enjoy their work and find it challenging, rewarding and unique.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com What does a degree in criminal psychology entail?
      • Aside from countless programs offered online and at universities,
      • there are several paths to becoming a criminal psychologist. 
      • Getting a  master’s degree in criminal psychology  is different than
      • becoming a licensed criminal psychologist; at best, it will prepare
      • you for entry level work.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com One has much further to go before practicing as a forensic psychologist. Most commonly, students will earn a master’s degree in some form of applied psychology, clinical or family counseling, for example, then will take a standardized national exam to gain a license.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Getting into a good program
      • Programs range from online courses to top-ranked university
      • curricula.
      • Programs of study should be carefully chosen based on
      • individual needs.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com As with medical students, a great emphasis is put on internships and extra-curricular involvement–and these opportunities are more readily available to those who have shown some valid interest or are currently studying some form of psychology. In any case, good grades paired with immersion in the world of criminal psychology is the surest way to enter a choice master’s degree program.
    • www.helpingpsychology.com Your path to success begins with a good education.
