Psychology Minor

An 18-credit Psychology minor is available to students in any major, and it is a valuable addition if one's career will involve interaction with other people.

The Psychology minor is designed to provide undergraduate students with a broad overview of topics and domains within psychology, knowledge and skills related to research methods in psychology, and a deeper knowledge of research, theory, and application in one or two specific content domains.  Students completing this minor will find a flexible selection of coursework in psychology.

This minor is popular with business and science majors and also with technology-oriented majors in engineering and computing because an understanding of human factors is important in the development of new technologies.

Supporting Courses and Related Areas (15 credits)
Select 15 credits (at least 6 credits must be at the 400 level) from PSYCH courses
