Our program comprises a rigorous curriculum that prepares students by grounding them in theory, methods, and hands-on training. The Forensic Behavioral Analysis concentration integrates classical theory with contemporary research to synthesize theoretical perspectives to address current social problems relating to violence, sexual deviance, domestic relations, crime, and terrorism.
