Minor in Clinical and Health Psychology
The minor in Clinical and Health Psychology from the Temple Psychology Department consists of 21 credits. The minor will introduce 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 that this minor will help to prepare for the new MCAT exam, which has been modified to include psychology topics.
Students outside Psychology majors may declare this minor.
