Purpose of the Minor in Psychology:
The Psychology Minor fulfills the needs and interests of students preparing for careers in human services, education, business and industry. The minor also provides a mechanism by which students who have interests in the scientific study of behavior and mental processes can be recognized for their coursework in the area of psychology.
The Psychology Minor allows students in many other social and management science fields to complement their studies with a greater understanding of issues related to human behavior and mental processes. Hence, virtually any student with career aspirations that involve interactions with people can greatly benefit from a Psychology Minor.
Moreover, the successful completion of Psychological Methods (Psyc202) better prepares students to critically evaluate the large volume of psychological research that is reported in the popular media as well as scientific journals.
