The highly specialized Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology program was established in 2012 within GW’s Center for Professional Psychology. Since then, our alumni have gone on to apply their knowledge to careers in homeland security, law enforcement, correctional systems and social and community services for victims and offenders.
