Should You Major/Minor in Psychology?

Look at career resources to see if psychology is the right major or minor for you. Psychology majors must choose an interdisciplinary minor. Such a minor strengthens preparation in psychology and enables students to prepare for a diversity of careers. Human development is the most chosen minor, though a number of minors are also completed in human biology, business, and in the social science interdisciplinary programs.
