Minor in Psychology

The minor in Psychology is designed for students interested in becoming aware of issues in Psychology or in preparing for careers in human services or other mental health-related fields while pursuing another major. There is considerable flexibility in designing a minor that fits the student’s needs and desires. Because some courses have Pre-Requisites, are open to majors only, or are not offered every year, a student interested in a Psychology minor must be advised by the Psychology Department.
