Psychology Minor

Learn About the Science of People

Are you interested in why people do the things that they do, think the things that they think, and feel the way that they feel? If you like the idea that we can use the methods of science to address these questions, you will enjoy taking courses in Psychology. If a major in Psychology doesn’t fit into your degree plans, consider minoring in Psychology. Choose courses that will support your career plan and make you a more valuable employee.
