    • I do not have the accurate answer, but I could share some of the information that I learned with you. I looked into PsyD in Forensic and found out that there are things that you can not do with this degree. There is a reason why it is different than a PHD. If you are going to go to school for that long you may as well invest in a PHD and make it worth your time in having all options in your career and not just some.
