This program is right for you if you study psychology, human development, social policy, organizational behavior, criminology, or criminal justice.

With a strong European focus on forensic psychology, Stockholm is an ideal base for you to explore psycho-legal theories from a Nordic perspective, such as criminal profiling, social influence on eyewitness memory, and police investigative techniques.
