Minor in Psychology

The department offers two minors serving different objectives. Please note: students may not major and minor in psychology. Both minors require 18 hours total, including PSYC 2300. For all minors, a maximum of three hours of independent study, internship, or practicum may be applied to the required hours. Students should be advised that it may take two years to complete a minor since some courses may be offered only every other year.

General Psychology Minor: A minor in general psychology would involve an additional 15 hours selected from any upper-level (3000-level or above) courses. It is flexible enough to permit the student to structure a program to meet personal needs and interests.

Industrial Psychology Minor: Another choice is to minor in industrial psychology, for which the remaining 15 hours would be chosen from the seven courses listed below.  The minor in industrial psychology is designed to complement a variety of majors, including management, marketing, advertising/public relations, communication, education, sociology, and political science.
