Spotlight on Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology – Argosy University, Dallas

The Master of Arts in Forensic Psychology degree program at Argosy University, Dallas offers a variety of experiences beyond just getting your education. We have an official mascot – Underdog. Why - because in our field we often support those who have very unique needs and are often seen as the expected loser in a legal issue. We wear the cape with pride.

This program teaches more than just the behavior expected of criminals. We teach why those behaviors may become criminal behaviors and we use a multidimensional approach to understanding forensic psychology. Here are a few of the important components of our program:

We offer a Field Placement to students who attend on campus in the blended format. We offer comprehensive Examination Preparation Workshops.

Our graduates work in a variety of fields including Juvenile and Adult Probation, local police departments, recovery agencies, court ordered treatment agencies, and the criminal justice field. Some of our graduates go on to doctoral programs.

Dr. Debbra Jennings is the Chair of the program and teaches several of the courses. She brings years of experience in evaluation and intervention, program development, and teaching. She is a member of the American Psychological Association, the American Psychology-Law Division – Division 41 of the American Psychological Association, the Dallas Forensic Group, and the National Association of School Psychologists.

Come see what we are all about. Visit a class to experience the energy. Dr. Jennings can be reached through her email at Dkjennings@argosy.edu.
