Psychology Minor

The Psychology minor introduces students to theoretical concepts, scientific methodologies, and real-world applications in the diverse field of Psychology.

Students are encouraged to declare their Psychology Minor as early as possible. To do so, bring your completed “Application for Minor” form to the Psychology Department Main Office (SSB 109). Once the form has been signed by the Department Chair, you will deliver the signed document to Records and Registration.

 

New Requirements for the Psychology Minor (beginning in Fall 2018)

The Psychology Minor consists of five courses:

  • PSY 101 – General Psychology (with a grade of C+ or higher)
  • PSY 121 – Methods and Tools (with a grade of C+ or higher)
  • One Foundation Course (with a grade of C- or higher)
  • Two Specialized Courses (with a grade of C- or higher; At most one can of these be an ELOPsy course)

For information on Foundation and Specialized courses, review the Psychology program overview and course descriptions. For the list of ELOPsy courses, consult the ELOPsy website.

Note: Some Specialized courses have one or more Foundation courses as pre-requisites. We recommend looking at the pre-requisites for the Specialized courses you may be interested in taking and planning your Foundation course accordingly. Remember that any additional Foundation courses you take will count toward your free electives.

Previous Requirements for the Psychology Minor (for students who declared the minor prior to Fall 2018)

Please note: Due to very high enrollment in the Psychology major, we are unable to provide advising meetings with Psychology minors. Questions about the process of declaring the minor can be directed in person to the Psychology main office. Information about applicable courses is available in the Undergraduate Bulletin and course descriptions are accessible in PAWS. Any remaining questions can be sent via email to the department Program Coordinator, Maddie Anthes (weinlanm@tcnj.edu).
