Am interested in completing a degree in forensics but don't know what to do? I considered forensic investigation but saw that the percentage of students in full time jobs 6 months after was really low. Also considered going into forensic psychology but that would entail a psychologand criminology degree. Just asking for advice??

Do you want a degree in forensics, or a career in forensics?

If you want a career, then try to decide what field you are interested in - forensic psychology, forensic pathology etc.

I'm going into forensic psychology and you don't need an undergraduate degree in psychology and criminology as you said - just any BPS accredited degree (can be found on their website).

I can try to help you.

I'd do some research and be tempted to suggest you go for a broader degree than a forensic specific one. Actually getting a job in forensics is hard and competitive and at least if you have a broader degree you will have options for other jobs in the meantime

I have considered forensic psychology as an option. In all honesty, I haven't looked in depth at other areas due to there not being much information online about them.
