The Psychology Extension minor is designed to give students enrolled in an accredited psychology sequence the opportunity to study some areas of psychology in greater depth. To complete the minor students must choose four subjects from a prescribed pool. Students enrolled in non-Psychology degrees are welcome to select the minor, but they should carefully check the prerequisites of subjects in the pool as many of them require completion of subjects from the psychology core.
