Psychology Minor

The entrance prerequisite course work for the Psychology minor is the same as for the major (PSY 201 or equivalent with a grade of C or better). To earn a minor in Psychology, students must complete a minimum of 16 semester hours of upper-division psychology course work at least 12 of which must be upper-division course work taken at UIS. Four of these hours must be PSY 302 Research Methods In Psychology or its equivalent. Students who have earned a grade of C or better (grades of C- or lower will not be accepted) in upper-division psychology courses at another institution may use those courses as the basis for a reduction of up to four hours in the total hours required for a minor. PSY 302 is the only required course for a minor in Psychology. The remaining 12 hours may be selected from any upper-division psychology course offerings.  Only one course taken to complete the minor can be crossed-listed with other departments.
