Minor in Psychology

The Psychology Minor is open to all undergraduate students. You will gain a basic understanding and awareness of behavior through a curriculum that emphasizes psychology as a science. By exploring individual areas of interest in psychology through a variety of courses, you will learn information that will complement knowledge acquired through your major. Coursework will include research methodology, biological and social factors influencing behavior, development, learning, memory, personality, and abnormalities.

Note: Students using PSYC 1101 for the psychology minor may not use it to fulfill Area E of the General Education Core Curriculum Requirements.
