The minor in Psychology is designed to help prepare students who are pursuing a career that involves working with people and/or understanding people’s thoughts, feelings, and behavior. The minor provides a foundation in the science of behavior and mental processes and the application of psychological principles to real-world problems.
At least 3 courses (9 credit hours) in the minor must be upper division, and 6 of those hours must be taken at MSU Denver. A grade of “D-” or better is required for each course in this program to count toward the minor. Students should note that programs differ in the minimum grade required. Psychology minors must have an overall GPA of 2.00 to graduate.
