Department of Psychology and Counseling
The psychology minor is for students not majoring in psychology.
The 15-credit minor in Psychology is designed for students interested in the scientific study of human behavior and mental processes. The study of Psychology exposes students to core competencies, such as interpersonal skills, research methods, and critical thinking skills, that are useful in a wide variety of careers. As such, students are encouraged to take advantage of the open-ended structure of the minor and work with their academic advisor to select elective courses that complement their major, and are relevant to their career goals.
