Psychology Minor

Since you’re here, you’re probably fascinated with human behavior. We are too. The coolest thing about the psychology minor is that it pairs really well with any major. Who couldn’t benefit from understanding how we act the way we do? This minor will introduce you to some of the major areas in psychology. Depending on your interests, you may select from courses in child, social, or abnormal psychology, along with many others. Fair warning: be prepared to learn a lot about yourself in the process.
