Psychology Minor

 Students selecting Psychology as a minor must first pass PSYC 2301 General Psychology with a grade of “C” or better. If this course is used to fulfil either the 080 or 090 component area of the General Education core, it may be replaced with any free elective. Subsequently,  (18) semester credit hours are required through enrollment in six specified courses. One elective course in psychology may be taken to replace PSY 234 Basic Statistics if needed. The specified courses are as follows:
