Information for Minors

Declaration of a Minor. All students must use Path@Penn to declare a minor.  After you submit your request it will be reviewed and approved by Ms. Claire Ingulli, Undergraduate Coordinator.

The Minor in Psychology consists of 6 courses. It is intended to give the student a broad base in Psychology without the commitment to the full course load of the major. The requirements are therefore comparable to those of the major in type but reduced in number.  Students minoring in Psychology must have a minimum of 3 PSYC courses that count only in the minor.

Consumer Psychology Minor:

The goal of the interschool Consumer Psychology Minor is to create a program that fosters the natural link between Psychology in the College and Marketing in Wharton. To fulfill the minor, students must complete four courses from the Psychology department in SAS, four courses from the Marketing department in Wharton, and one semester of statistics. Click below for more information.
