Here we have three different courses: criminal psychology, forensic psychology and legal psychology.

Somehow I can't seem to find the differences between them, especially between criminal and forensic psychology. I already tried to look it up, but some sources describes them as equal and others as different (but I still liked both). So I keep getting confused.

So, if there are, what are the main differences between them? I'm asking this because I'm thinking in taking a master degree in this area and I can't seem to choose which one.

Thank you
