Pursuing a Psychology Minor

A minor in psychology can be a valuable supplement to education in almost any field. Students select from a variety of courses that enhance their understanding of animal or human behavior, the skills to intervene to change behavior and to create environments that support healthy behavior, and critical thinking skills related to asking and answering questions about human behavior. This knowledge prepares students to pursue a variety of careers where interacting with people is a central job component.
