Program Contact:   William Jellison  203-582-3724

Psychology is a fascinating and complex discipline with a rich history and a range of subfields that intersect in some capacity with nearly every other field of academic study. The minor allows you to select topics that most complement your academic and career goals. Courses offered focus on the major perspectives in the field (namely, the biological, cognitive, social, developmental and scientist-practitioner) as well as other specialized areas of interest (e.g., clinical psychology, school psychology, forensic psychology, health psychology and the like). 

The minor requires 18 credits of psychology courses, no more than 6 of which can be at the 100-level. Course selection should be based on the student’s interest and goals; however the following courses are reserved for majors only: PS 206, PS 307, PS 308, PS 353, PS 391, PS 393, PS 394 and PS 401.
