Brock launches Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice program

January 22, 2021
Brock University is launching a Forensic Psychology and Criminal Justice (FPAC) program. The program will draw from courses and research from the Departments of Psychology, Political Science, and Child and Youth Studies to cover why people become involved in crime and how institutions respond to this involvement. “Rather than assuming that a behaviour or a system’s response to behaviour stems from any one factor or perspective, FPAC is premised on the idea that factors across disciplines are required in order to provide more nuanced, critical and complex understandings of behaviour and responses,” said Psychology Professor Angela Book. Brock says that this program is unique in Canada. Brock (ON)
