Transform the stigma of mental health
A dual degree with limitless opportunities
Do you care about community mental health and social justice? In HNU’s unique program you’ll study the fascinating intersection of psychology and criminal justice. You'll learn about the culture of the criminal justice system and how social demographics, including race, gender, sexual orientation, class, mental health, and religion affect the distribution of justice, punishment, and treatment. You’ll gain a strong foundation in restorative justice, forensic assessment, and have an opportunity to apply theory to practice through real-world experience.
This one-of-a-kind program leads to two separate master’s degrees (Master’s in Counseling Psychology & Master’s in Forensic Psychology), allowing you to study both forensic and counseling psychology simultaneously. With this flexible path, you can specialize in forensics—a growing and in-demand field—while also preparing for MFT or LPCC licensure.
