Minor in Psychology

Degree Type



Even when your focus is on understanding and learning how to help others, you’ll probably learn more about yourself too.


Why minor in psychology?

It’s highly likely that whatever jobs or careers you’re pursuing, you’ll have to deal with people. You’ll interact with colleagues and teammates, and may even work directly with clients or consumers. Anywhere there are people, there’s a need to learn how to work together.

A psychology minor may not prepare you to become a licensed mental health professional. However, it can add value to your other areas of study by encouraging you to think critically about behavior, and teaching you how to be aware of your own. And when it comes to work environments, knowing how to deal with people is a skill with a high return on investment (ROI) for any employer.

You can also choose to major in Applied Psychology.
