Potential students often look for guidance regarding the
programs that they are considering. You are a program
assistant at a local university. You have been asked by your
department chair (psychology) to create a booklet about the
field of forensic psychology for potential students. This booklet
will be given out at information sessions and will be sent to
students requesting more information. The department chair
asks you to create this booklet with the undecided student in
mind, remembering that while you don’t want to scare students
away, you also want to be truthful about the field. She asks for
the following information to be included:
A description of the educational levels required and
recommended (i.e. what can a MA level forensic psychologist
do, versus a Doctorate level professional). Different roles that a
forensic psychologist can take. This can include roles in the
court and out as well as research possibilities. (2 pages)
A discussion of each of the following and discuss why is it
important that all forensic psychologists need to be well-versed
in them (3 pages):
Specific Amendments to the U.S. Constitution and why they
Important past research in the field
An analysis of at least three aspects of the American
judicial system (such as eyewitness testimony, transfer of
juveniles to criminal court, etc.), which are impacted most
heavily by psychology and psychological research (3 pages). Be
sure to discuss:
Three aspects of the American judicial system
How psychology has impacted these aspects
One research study for each aspect that is considered
pivotal, classic or ground breaking in the field.
Your booklet needs to be at least 8 pages long. Because it is an
informational booklet, it will not be formatted like a formal
paper, but should be professionally and attractively presented.
Please remember that all citations should follow APA
formatting rules, and the majority of the information should be
in a formal academic writing style. However, a minority of the
information can be written in bulleted format.
