Minor in Psychology

Think big.

A minor in psychology can help you reach your career goals, stand out among employers, and, simply, make you a better friend.

That is because understanding the science behind our decision-making, motivations, perception and the biology behind it all can help us both professionally and personally. It is why psychology is useful in so many different careers — law, writing, business, American Sign Language, education, athletics and more. A grasp of the things that make us tick can get us thinking more deeply and with greater context for a bigger picture.
