Minor in Psychology
The department offers three minors serving different objectives. Please note: students may not major and minor in psychology. All three 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.
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 wishes.
Another choice is to minor in industrial psychology, for which the remaining 15 hours would be chosen from the following seven courses: Applied Psychology, Personnel Psychology, Industrial Psychology, Organizational Psychology, Human Factors Psychology, Psychology of Consumer Behavior, Psychological Tests, and Statistics & Methods I. 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.
