Criminology and Forensic Psychology/BA or BSc for Forensic Psych


Hi! I am currently in my last year of high school and have been looking into university programs (undergrad). I am looking to apply to just a clinical psychology program for now. In the future, I am hoping to get into a graduate program to receive my doctorate in forensic psychology. My question is whether I should get a BA or a BSc. Which do you think would benefit me more in this field?

Thank you very much,


I would suggest the Bachelor of Science track to give you a taste of research methods, statistics, and other courses that will prepare you for graduate work in the field of Psychology.  In short, take as many science related courses because if you pursue your Ph.D in Psychology you will be conducting research.
