Why Study Forensic Psychology at Walden?

Joan Swart

"When I started my MS in Forensic Psychology program, it was more of a casual interest than an intention to change careers. But I enjoyed my studies at Walden so much that I wanted to pursue the field as a full-time opportunity. Walden made my personal reinvention possible."
