Psychology + Health Psychology Minors

Whatever career you pursue, a minor in psychology can complement your primary major, enhance your employability, allow you to develop a secondary area of expertise, or give you a chance to explore a passion. The skills that you acquire through the study of psychology such as analyzing data, communicating complex information and understanding human behavior are all abilities that are highly prized by employers.

Two options are available:

Psychology Minor

This Psychology Minor requires a minimum of 15 credit hours of selected course work and is designed to compliment your primary major while providing insight into the understanding of psychology. Requirements vary depending on a student's date of enrollment at IUPUI. Additional Foundation courses beyond the two required - from PSY-B310, 320, 340, 370 - can count toward the Content course requirements.  However, PSY-B305 Statistics and PSY-B311 Research Methods are considered Research Methods courses.  PSY-B305 and PSY-B311 cannot count in the Content course requirements for the Psychology minor.  If you have further questions about what will or will not count for the Content course requirement, please contact Jared Trullinger at jstrull@iupui.eduNote that students majoring in Psychology cannot earn the Psychology minor. 

Health Psychology Minor

The Health Psychology minor requires a minimum of 15 credit hours of selected course work and is designed to prepare students for a strong introduction to this sub-discipline of psychology that will complement a broader interest in health and health-related careers. If you have additional questions about courses which can count for the Health Psychology Elective, or would like to propose a course with rationale, please contact Jared Trullinger at Note that students majoring in Psychology cannot earn the Health Psychology minor.
