Psychology Minors

Requirements for the Minor

Welcome to the Psychology Minor at Tulane University. You are joining a large and diverse group of students. There are over 60 Psychology minors at Tulane, one of the most popular minors at the University.

A minor in Psychology requires five courses and a minimum of 16 hours. These courses must include an introductory level course (i.e., PSYC 1000 or 1010), univariate statistics one (i.e., PSYC 3090/2090), and three additional 3 credit Psychology courses at or above the 300 level (to reach 16cr). A grade-point average of 2.0 or higher is required in courses applied to the minor. All courses applied to the minor must be taken for a letter grade, not S/U.

Psychology minors who major in Neuroscience need to recognize that several PSYC courses are required by NSCI and that many others are crosslisted. Consequently, the PSYC minor for NSCI majors requires PSYC 1000 or 1010, PSYC 3090, and PSYC 3300 plus three additional 3 or 4 credit courses at or above the 3000-level that do not overlap with the Neuroscience major.

To declare a minor in Psychology, please leave the completed form at the Psychology Office, room 2007 Stern.  If you have any additional questions about the minor, please ask your assigned Psychology advisor, or Dr. Laurie O'Brien, Chair of Undergraduate Studies. All psychology faculty can be reached by calling the department at (504) 865-5331.
