Minor in Psychology

The Psychology Minor allows students from many diverse fields and areas of interest (e.g., Business Administration, pre-Law, pre-Med, Education, Law Enforcement, and the Military) to attain in-depth knowledge of the Behavioral Sciences. Students minoring in Psychology have the opportunity to enhance their criticial thinking and problem solving skills by reviewing the scientific literature and communicating their findings through multiple media (oral presentations, written papers, and conference presentations). The curriculum for the Psychology minor has been arranged in such a fashion as to maximize the flexibility needed to match the student's individual career goals while at the same time ensuring a knowledge of the broad areas of psychology.
