Master's in Legal, Forensic and Criminological Psychopathology

There is currently a growing educational need in the field of Legal, Forensic and Criminological Psychopathology among professionals who exercise their profession in areas related to Mental Health. As an individual starting off in professional practice, everyone who undertakes their work in the field of legal medicine or must intervene in the forensic field as specialists and deal with different psycho-pathological issues requires special theoretical and practical knowledge of this type of material.

The advantage of greater consolidation and specialization in terms of dealing with the existing gaps in education, in such a way that those who intervene in one way or another operate with assumed jurisdiction in the legal-juridical level in the forensic field can be perceived. With this aim in mind, the idea is to complement the specific technical, scientific or educational specializations of the various professionals, in such a way that they understand the problems in which they must intervene from a comprehensive perspective.

The academic program designed for this university master’s degree aims to cover current and future demand for professionals from the fields of Mental Health and Legal, Forensic and Criminological Sciences in the following two aspects:

  1. The aim is to provide future professionals with the necessary tools and competences which will allow them to work professionally as experts or forensic experts in the field of justice or intervene in the various public or private sectors which require qualified knowledge of the material: in prisons and hospitals, as members of the forensic police, as court-appointed experts, staff who work in treatment or reinsertion services for criminals, criminologists and private investigators and other sectors which may require it.
  2. The aim is to increase the level of technical knowledge and competences for professionals who are directly or indirectly involved the judicial-legal, forensic and criminological fields which in the exercise of their activities must deal with psychopathological issues.

The unique nature of our academic course is based on providing the methodological and practical tools that are necessary for professional development in various fields that are related to each other: legal and forensic medicine professionals, psychologists and psychiatrists, criminologists and professionals from the legal field in general.
