Should I do Criminal/Forensic Psychology or a general Psychology course?Watch
So I want to do Criminal/Forensic Psychology in the future, and I was wondering whether I should do a more specific Criminal/Psychology course at University (displaying to any employers that I've had a passion for that specific field for quite some time) or a general BSc/MA Psychology course (keeping my options open for the future).
Does the difference in courses have any impact upon employers decisions to hire you?
Thank you to anyone who replies!
Equally, there is no real need to do a more specific course, but it won't hurt if you are set on a particular career path.
I think there is a slight danger that criminal psychology doesn't look as good on a CV for a generic graduate job, not sure how true this is.
Another thing to consider is that at 17 you may well change your mind about what you want to do when you graduate (or you may find that you want to follow a different aspect of psychology).
