Minor in General Psychology

The undergraduate minor in psychology is designed to give students the flexibility to explore the breadth of areas covered by psychology or to focus in a more specific area within the field.

Students are encouraged to construct a minor that either explores the breadth of areas in psychology (e.g. developmental, abnormal, social, sensation and perception, and health psychology) or to focus more in depth in a given area (e.g., developmental, adolescent, adulthood and aging, and two additional courses).
