Application for Minor in Psychology
The Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences offers a minor in Psychology to complement other majors and degrees offered by the College of Arts and Sciences. While we've made efforts to ensure the accuracy of the requirements indicated on the form below, the official source of information regarding the College of Arts and Sciences minor requirements is the College of Arts and Sciences Academic Bulletin.
For the minor in Psychology, students must complete 15 College of Arts and Sciences credit hours including:
- Introductory Psychology course(s)
- Two additional Psychology courses at the 300 or 400 level
All courses must be completed with a C- or higher, with a minimum minor GPA of 2.000 overall to earn a minor. The residency requirement of at least 9 hours in the minor at IU Bloomington must be met, along with a minimum of 9 credit hours at the 300/400 level in minor coursework.
It is highly recommended that students apply for a Psychology Minor after completing at least one Psychology course. Nonetheless, students do not need to have actually completed all requirements before submitting an application. Upon completing this form, your intention to obtain a Psychology minor will be confirmed with the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, and sent to your school's records office for later final confirmation that you've indeed completed the requirements.
