Forensic Anthropology and Forensic Psychology

by Rita Kantu
(Johannesburg, Gauteng, South Africa)

I'm a first year student at the University of the Witswatersrand in South Africa. I've always been interested in the forensic science field, however, I'm confused as to which direction my career is headed.

I'm currently studying towards a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree and my current subjects are: Psychology, Anthropology, International Relations and Italian.

I'd like to know how I should go about following a career in forensic psychology or forensic anthropology. Should I major in Psychology an Anthropology and after that specialise in either Clinical psychology or medical anthropology or should I transfer to a different degree, say a B.Sc.?
