PhD Minor

Candidates for the PhD degree in other departments may elect a minor in Psychology. 

Candidates for the Ph.D. degree in other departments may elect to take a minor in Psychology. To obtain a minor, the student must complete 20 units of course work at the graduate level in the Department of Psychology. Crosslisted graduate courses can be used to satisfy this requirement. All courses counting toward the Ph.D. minor must be taken for a letter grade and passed with a grade of 'B-' or better. If the course is not offered for a letter grade, it cannot be counted towards the PhD minor.

Courses taken in spring quarter 2020 with S or CR grades count towards the PhD minor requirements. This exception accommodates the University's policy to only offer courses on a Satisfactory / No Credit basis during the online-only quarter during the COVID-19 outbreak. 

Those interested in applying may complete the application form or contact Psychology Student Services for more information.
