    Hello! I'd like to ask something: Does anyone here know where could you possibly work if you choose an Msc in Criminology/Criminal Justice and you already have a Bsc in Psychology? Forensic Psychologists would have many more opportunities than this combination I suppose...

    You already have a degree in what? First we're talking about the Legal System here, remember those guys? Refresher, " bad bad people we will punish them and spank them nothing seems to work we will send a stronger message". Kind of looses it's whistle, doesn't it. Psychology could be used everywhere throughout. Legal systems are everywhere, and every different country. So the demand is there. The best area in the legal system in my opinion is still lawyer. You could be a lawyer in 2 years for cheap.

    Firstly, look at the country you're in and the opportunities, research facilities and programs in your own and nearby states, counties, cities.

    And your own interests. Are you more interested in prison work/ design/ management or in family violence or in diversion programs or in young and other first offenders or in public health / public order type programs?

    If you're interested in forensic psychology does that indicate that you're more interested in working with individuals than in program design or in prevention policies?

    Thank you for your answers. Actually, I already have a degree in Psychology and I'm interested in postgraduate studies in forensic/criminology fields. My first choice is Forensic Psychology, I just thought to also apply for the Msc in Criminology, as a second choice, but I don't know the career prospects there, as you won't be considered as a psychologist and it's a bit confusing.

    A degree In Medicine would of course allow you autopsy exposure, not that a career along that path would stop anyone in their path such.
