A minor in Psychology can serve two purposes: it can support a major or provide a level of competency in an area of interest. A minor in Psychology can be relevant to anyone pursuing an academic major which leads to working with people, ideas, and/or social and communications systems. A Psychology minor can also satisfy the need to know about what makes people behave the way they do.
The minor in Industrial/Organizational Psychology offers excellent training in how to understand human behavior using scientifically rigorous methods. This minor can be a great complement to many majors. Students majoring in Business, Economics, Political Science, and Communication, for example, may find it especially helpful to their career goals.
