Military - MS in Forensic Psychology

Return to: MS in Forensic Psychology  

Active military personnel and combat veterans face a variety of emotional challenges brought on by frequent relocations, separation from family, and experiences at war. In some instances, the strain of combat-related stress can lead to substance abuse, homelessness, or other social issues. The courses in this elective cluster help students develop an understanding of military culture and the short- and long-term effects of post-traumatic stress disorder. They also will have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of how family members are affected by a loved one’s combat-related experiences.
