Florida Tech to Offer Only Forensic Psychology Undergraduate Degree Program in State
– The route to a career in crime analysis is now available from Florida Institute of Technology through the university’s new Forensic Psychology bachelor’s

undergraduate level and the only one in the state of Florida to do so.
The forensic psychology program is designed for students who want to learn how psychological theory and research can be used in the criminal justice system
and related fields. Crime analysts, for example, maintain databases and obtain and compile data for crime analysis reports. They serve as part of the
management team within police departments to increase the effectiveness of patrol deployment, criminal investigations, special operations and tactical unit
