Minor Description:

Students will learn the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology. 

Minor Requirements:

The Psychology minor requires 18 units of Psychology coursework, 9 of which must be upper division (300-400 level) and 9 units must also be in residence. Students must have a 2.0 cumulative GPA to declare and must have a 2.0 GPA in the minor in order to graduate. The course requirements are listed below:

PSY 101 or INDV 101 (PSY 150A1: Structure of Mind and Behavior* for Fall '11 catalogs and beyond)
PSY 230: Measurement and Statistics**
PSY Lower Division or Upper Division Elective
PSY Upper Division Elective
PSY Upper Division Elective
PSY Upper Division Elective

* If you have completed PSY101/PSY 150A1/INDV 101: Structure of Mind and Behavior and are using it towards your General Education requirements, the units cannot also be used towards the Psychology minor. However it will fulfill the PSY 101 requirement. Students will be required to take another Psychology course to fulfill the unit requirement.

**If you have completed another statistics course for your major please ask a Psychology advisor how or if it can be used in the minor.

Comments:

During priority registration, Psychology courses are restricted to declared Psychology majors and minors.

Academic Advisement Report

Declaring the Minor:

Any academic advisor can declare the Psychology minor for students who have a cumulative 2.0 GPA or higher. However, if students have questions about Psychology minor requirements, they need to see a Psychology advisor.

Double Use of Minor Course Work:

Psychology courses used in other major’s PreMajor requirements (i.e., FSHD, PreNursing, etc.) can be used in the minor as well but please always double check with an Advisor in Psychology to be sure.
