As a supplement to a non-psychology-major field of study, a minor in Psychology offers a broad understanding and global perspective of psychology and its relevance in an increasingly diverse and global society. You will apply psychological theories to current issues affecting the field through online psychology courses that focus on helping you gain perspective in three areas: social awareness and civic engagement, cross-cultural competence, and evidence-based decision making. Note: This minor is open to all bachelor’s degree students except those enrolled in the BS in Psychology program.
