Psychology Minor

The psychology minor can be a meaningful adjunct to any major, but is especially pertinent to the study and practice of education, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech-language pathology, business administration, and social work. Focusing on the origins, development, modification, and implications of human behavior, the study of psychology has numerous applications to personal and professional life. In certain cases, some courses in other disciplines may serve as the equivalent of courses listed below. Please contact the department for more information.
