Minor Program
The psychology minor is designed to expose students to a range of perspectives, methodologies and content areas. In addition to the introductory course (PSYC 1101), students must select courses from three of the five each categories of psychology courses. This provides sufficient breadth while permitting the students, with advisement, to obtain depth with the two remaining elective courses.
