Minor in Psychology

A minor in psychology is available to all non-psychology majors. The minor program provides a foundation in research methods and statistics and allows the student to take upper level courses in various areas of psychology. This minor is valuable for students who wish to have a background in psychology while pursuing other majors and considering graduate school in psychology or related fields. Further information is available on the School's web site.
