Minor in Psychological Science
Did You Know?
Preparation for a particular career comes with the courses you choose to take, not the degree that you earn. For example, students routinely enter medical school having earned a B.A. degree and having taken courses in physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics. Similarly, students frequently earn a B.S. degree having also taken a large number of courses in the social sciences or humanities.
Note that you MUST fulfill both the general requirements of the College of Arts and Sciences, and the specific requirements of the minor in Psychological Science.

One psychology course at the 200-level
The psychological science minor is only available to students in the College of Arts and Sciences. Students outside of this college who require psychology courses to pursue their graduate school or career goals can contact the Psychological Science Chair, Professor William Falls, to request overrides for entrance into these courses. Decisions regarding these requests will occur on a case-by-case basis in consultation with the instructor of the requested course(s).
