Psychology minor

Students who are majoring in another program may choose to take a Psychology minor in addition to their primary course of study. A minor normally consists of a minimum of 15 semester hours, 6 of which must be taken at the 300/400 level. Each academic school or department must approve the student and curriculum to be used in the completion of each minor for the Office of the Registrar to verify at the point of graduation.

“The willingness of Malone faculty to engage in one-on-one training provided the sort of background that I've found many grad school advisers find highly desirable in applicants."
