Psychology Minor

The psychology minor can be a meaningful addition to many majors because psychology helps you learn about and understand human behavior. If you’re interested in minoring in psychology, start with PSY 101 and PSY 300 and, then, choose your other courses with the help of an advisor. 

Transfer students can transfer up to 5 credits, usually introductory psychology, to the minor.  Psychology minors who are majoring in Law and Justice, Sociology, and Social Services may not need to take PSY 300 (see details below) and should talk to an advisor before registering.

For questions pertaining to the online minor, head to our online programs webpage at https://www.cwu.edu/psychology/online-psychology-programs or contact Dr. Liane Pereira at liane.pereira@cwu.edu.
