Psychology : Minor Requirements

Students who have an interest in psychology but would prefer to adapt their study as a complement to another major may choose to minor in Psychology. The Psychology Division includes seven faculty members with doctoral degrees in different subfields of psychology who offer over 30 different courses. The Psychology Minor requires students to sample from the breadth of the discipline while allowing them some flexibility in course selection. Thus, students with majors in a wide variety of disciplines ranging from business to criminal justice, from education to communication studies, or from art to philosophy will find it possible to design a psychology minor that is relevant to their career goals.
