The Minor in Clinical and Health Psychology, offered by the Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, consists of 21 credits. The minor introduces students to the specialties in psychology that focus on understanding health and illness through the study of the interplay among psychology, biology and environment. This minor is designed for students who do not major in psychology but have interests in psychology, public health and other health-related careers (e.g., nursing, speech therapy). Pre-med students will find this minor helpful in preparing for the MCAT exam, which was modified to include psychology topics.
Students outside of the Psychology major may declare this minor. Psychology majors are not permitted to declare the Clinical and Health Psychology minor but are permitted to take its courses as electives in their major.
Minors are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
