  2. 2. Personal Statement<br />Although I achieved my Associates and Bachelor’s degrees in Chemistry back in 1994, I have always had a strong interest in the field of Psychology. Over the years, my interests have become more fine-tuned towards the field of Criminal Psychology. <br />Having watched shows like “The New Detectives” and “Most Evil”, I have found myself increasingly fascinated by human motivations and what biological or psychological aspects contributed to different kinds of criminal behavior. <br />I plan on developing a Field Profiling computer program that will assist law enforcement and help investigators draw more informed conclusions. I believe that my training in the Sciences and IT Technology can bring unique perspective to the field of Criminal Psychology.<br />

  7. 7. My Future in Learning<br />I would eventually like to achieve credentials (PhD) for the ability to design and conduct research and write authoritative papers about topics I am passionate about (PTSD). I have a strong interest in Forensic Psychology and can see myself writing about my discoveries or the development of new insights that lead to a better understanding about the human mind. I would also like to get practical experience in counseling youth and adults (community outreach) and hope one day to teach what I have learned in my area of specialty.<br />I would also like to interview incarcerated criminals and study case files to gain more insight into criminal motivation. I have this idea of eventually developing a “20 questions” style program that asks for details about a case and directs or enlightens law enforcement towards apprehension. Using my experience with enterprise applications, I would like this program to contain my personal insights but also be customizable so that persons with a particular level of expertise can integrate their knowledge into the program.<br />
