Why minor in Psychology?
Psychology is one of the many helping professions that studies the human mind, behavior, and social interactions. If you're interested in the field but you're not sure if it's your life's goal, a psychology minor can provide you with a basic background in the fundamentals needed to enhance your understanding of human behavior. A psychology minor can also help you to further your career - many employers are interested in applicants who have a deeper understanding of how the mind works and how it influences behavior.
