Minors

Complement your major with a minor in psychology

We offer two undergraduate minor programs—a minor in health psychology and a minor in psychology. Whatever career you pursue, a minor in psychology can complement your primary major, enhance your employability, allow you to develop a secondary area of expertise, or give you a chance to explore a passion.

With a psychology minor you'll gain insight into the psychological concepts and practices that are vital in nearly every field. The skills that you acquire through the study of psychology such as analyzing data, communicating complex information and understanding human behavior are all abilities that are highly prized by employers.
