Certificate in Law and Human Behavior
"Law and human behavior" is an umbrella term that encompasses various aspects of forensic psychology, law and justice. This rapidly emerging field examines how the justice system intersects with the mental health professions.
This 18-credit hour certificate program focuses on the criminal justice aspects of forensic psychology, emphasizing victimology, offender treatment, criminal incapacity, mental health law, juvenile justice and delinquency, and the dynamics of how the criminal justice system intersects with behavioral science. The program is designed to provide students of social services and social sciences with an understanding of important but understudied areas where justice policy is in desperate need of empirical, psychological research.
Certificates can be added by existing ASU students in any major.
