Beginning this Fall, Alliant University in San Diego through the Center for Forensic Studies will offer a doctoral program in forensic psychology, but just because youve seen CSI doesnt mean youre ready to jump into the frightening field.
Dr. Eric Hickey a forensic psychologist whos worked with Jeffrey Dahmer and John Wayne Gacey says, You cant come in all excited about meeting serial killers, or thinking theyre larger than life. Theyre not God-like. Theyre dark, seriously disturbed folks.
Hickey says shows like CSI and Medium distort the realities of crime scene investigation, and students who enroll in the course are in for a chilling change.
He says, This is not for everybody. Were dealing with psychopaths, sexual predators, and mass murderers. Its worse than anything youve seen on TV. Much worse.
