Program Information

Students who have an interest in psychology but would prefer to adapt their study as a complement to another major may choose to minor in Psychology. The curriculum allows flexibility in course selection. Thus, students with majors in a wide variety of disciplines will find it possible to design a psychology minor that is relevant to their career goals.

Student Learning Outcomes

  • demonstrate familiarity with major concepts in psychology;
  • understand basic research methods in psychology;
  • critically evaluate empirical support for various theories and findings;
