About the Minor

In addition to providing a full experience of psychology through the major, we also offer a minor in Psychology. This minor provides you with a brief introduction to psychology through two survey courses and then allows you to select four electives within the field. In this way you can get a basic introduction to the field as a way of complementing the major field of study. 

For example, a Health Wellness and Occupational Studies major may wish to get greater exposure to psychological concepts and select a Psychology minor. A business major who hopes to work in management, advertising, or human resources may benefit from learning more about human behavior and decision making and select a Psychology minor.

To learn more about the minor in Psychology view the catalog.
