Psychology (Minor)

Program Summary

The Minor in Psychology is designed for students wanting to pair additional knowledge of and experience with human thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to their degree. The minor provides an introductory level of exposure to the field of psychology. Although the minor consists of the same learning outcomes as the B.A. and B.S. degrees, the expectation is that these outcomes will also be met by students but at a more introductory level.
