The psychology minor is designed to provide undergraduate students with a flexible selection of coursework in psychology. Students completing this minor will acquire a broad overview of topics and domains within psychology, knowledge and skills related to research methods in psychology, and deeper knowledge of research, theory, and application in one or two specific content areas.
Requirements for the Minor: 18 credits of psychology courses
The 18 credits must include the following:
- Psychology 100
- Psychology 301W*
- 6 credits of 400-level psychology courses
*PSYCH 301W has a prerequisite of STAT 200, which does not count toward the minimum 18 credits.
NOTE: Other Writing Intensive courses may be used as a substitute for PSYCH 301W, but 3 additional credits of psychology must be taken to total 18 credits of PSYCH courses.
A grade of C or better is required for all courses in the minor. Courses taken for the minor may also count toward General Education, major, and other college requirements.
Students may declare the minor in LionPATH using the “Update Academics” option.
