Program Overview

In the Minor in Psychology program, you’ll examine modern therapy methods, as well as the approaches of classical and contemporary psychology in studying human behavior, cognitive growth and emotional development. You’ll understand the many variables that affect how individuals learn, interact and function from childhood through adolescence and into adulthood.

The minor allows you to select topics that most complement your academic and career goals. Electives in social psychology expose you to how the environmental factors and societal norms at work each day influence the development of personality, identity and sexuality. Other courses focus on the application of statistical analysis, while industrial and organizational psychology connects concepts and principles to issues in the workplace, such as worker motivation and performance appraisal.
