Minor


***************** Announcement! There are changes to the Minor in Psychology! *****************


New Minor in Psychology

The new Minor in Psychology will begin Fall 2014, but until then students may utilize some of the flexibility offered by the new minor, and substitutions will be made by the Chair of the Department of Psychology on a case by case basis. The new Minor in Psychology will consist of 18 credits as described below, but if a student will graduate before Fall 2014, the minor will require 19 hours rather than 18 hours.

Beginning in the 2014-2015 catalog, all students pursuing the Minor in Psychology must take:

  • PSYC 1310 - Introduction to Psychology (3 credits)

Select 2 courses from the following list:

  • PSYC2000 Social Psychology (3 credits)
  • PSYC2500 Behavior Analysis (3 credits)
  • PSYC2800 Child Psychological Science (3 credits)

Take 9 credits of PSYC courses at the 3000/4000 level 


Old Minor in Psychology

Old minor requirements are listed below, and may still be followed by students in catalogs earlier than 2014-15; however, PSYC 3100, PSYC 3200, and PSYC 3201 are no longer being offered. Any of these courses that have not been taken by that time must be replaced by other 3000- or 4000-level courses.

PSYC 1310 (Introduction to Psychology) – 3 Hours
PSYC 2000 (Social Psychology) – 3 Hours
