Psychology Minor

Students completing a minor in psychology must earn (or be in the process of earning) a C (2.0) in a psychology course, generally PSY-100 Introduction to Psychology, before declaring. Minors may also declare mid-semester of their first course as described above for majors.

To graduate with a minor in Psychology, students must have taken at least six courses (18 credits) in psychology including PSY-100 Introduction to Psychology, four of which must be taken at Salve Regina University and achieve a cumulative GPA in these courses of 2.0 (C).
