Psychology Minor


Return to Schools and Departments Return to: Schools and Departments

The minor in psychology provides a general introduction to the field without the depth of methodological training required of majors. The minor exposes students to individual and contextual perspectives in psychology.

Students who intend to seek a minor in Psychology must have taken PSYC 1000  and have obtained a grade of “B” or higher. Admission is competitive. A combination of discipline-relevant factors, including performance in PSYC 1000  and GPA will be used to determine eligibility. Students should declare the minor after completing PSYC 1000  to be eligible to register for subsequent courses for the minor.

General Requirements (6 Credits)


 Students must select at least one course from each of the groups listed below

Additional Requirements (6 credits)


Two additional psychology courses (not including PSYC 2099). Selection of courses for the Minor should be approved in consultation with the designated Psychology faculty and may complement the student’s major. Completion of courses that emphasize interdisciplinary content, community engagement, and experiential learning is encouraged.
