To fulfill a psychology minor, students must complete 18 credits with no more than 6 credits at 100-level courses, or two 100-level courses. PSY 100 is required for all minors. Other elective psychology courses are to be selected with departmental advisement and should complement the student’s major. Human relations or child study majors with a psychology concentration may not declare psychology as a minor.
