Welcome to the Psychology Minor

 
The 18-credit Psychology minor at the University of Scranton consists of:

  • PSYC 110 - (S) Fundamentals of Psychology
  • PSYC 210 - (Q) Statistics in the Behavioral Sciences
  • PSYC 330 - Research Methods in the Behavioral Sciences

and one course from three of the following four groups:

Physiological Processes

  • PSYC 230 - Sensation and Perception
  • PSYC 231 - (E) Behavioral Neuroscience

Learning Processes

  • PSYC 234 - (S) Cognitive Psychology
  • PSYC 235 - Conditioning and Learning

Social-Development Processes

  • PSYC 220 - (S) Social Psychology
  • PSYC 227 - (S) Lifespan Development: Social and Emotional

Individual Processes

  • PSYC 224 - (S) Personality and Individual Differences
  • PSYC 225 - (S) Abnormal Psychology

An equivalent statistics course and/or an equivalent research methods course may be substituted for PSYC 210 - (Q) Statistics in the Behavioral Sciences and/or PSYC 330 - Research Methods in the Behavioral Sciences. The Statistics course must contain a hefty dose of inferential statistics; EDUC 120 cannot be used for the Psychology minor. Contact the Department Chair for a list of acceptable courses. Any substituted course must be replaced with another 3-credit Psychology course; that is, the minor requires 18 credits in PSYC coursework.
