The behavioral sciences relate to the criminal justice system in many ways—understanding responses to criminal victimization, preventing or reducing crime, examining how the criminal justice system interacts with people who have mental illnesses, and exploring how human perceptual processes may influence forensic evidence analysis. These are only a few of the topics addressed in Behavioral Forensics courses. This advanced certificate program was developed to advance understanding of human behavior in forensic contexts and is intended to enhance employment options in criminal justice and mental health professions..
