Question by ♥: If I want to be a psychologist for a juvenile detention center what branch of psychology should I study?
I’m looking at college majors and there is child psychology and criminal psychology, which would I need to take?

Best answer:

Answer by Nevvo
. I would highly recommend you double major if you can. If you can’t then major in one and then minor in another. Child’s psychology won’t be a huge help to you, criminal psychology and criminal justice would look more solid in my opinion.

    I’d suggest Forensic Psychology, working to figure out why people do the things that get them in jail, or Developmental Psychology, studying how a child’s brain changes during childhood.
