Requirements for the Psychology Minor Starting in
The minor program offers an organized curriculum for students who wish to develop a core understanding of psychology. The minor is not meant for students whose primary interest is the study of psychology. Instead, it is a complement to other fields of study where knowledge of psychology and its methods would be beneficial.
The psychology minor consists of a minimum of 21 credits.
PSYC 101 General Psychology 3 cr
PSYC 250 Psychological Statistics 3 cr
PSYC 300 Research Methods 3 cr
Minors may substitute an equivalent course in statistical or quantitative methods from their major for PSYC 250. However, they still have to satisfy the 21 credit minimum requirement in Psychology. Minors may NOT substitute a Research Methods course from their major for PSYC 300.
Courses - 6 credits. Choose two of the four:
PSYC 205 Cognitive Psychology 3 cr
PSYC 210 Introduction to Human Development 3 cr
PSYC 220 Social Psychology 3 cr
PSYC 260 Psychology of Personality 3 cr
C. Depth Courses (psychology courses numbered 301 and above) - 6
Note: Psyc 410 and 499 do not count as depth courses.
