Minor Requirements

Two tracks are available:

Research Emphasis

A minimum of five units of credit in psychology including PSYC 110 , PSYC 210 , and PSYC 310  and at least two unit content courses from Tier 2. (MATH 105 , MATH 230 , or MATH 360  may substitute for PSYC 210 .)

General Emphasis

A minimum of five units in psychology including PSYC 110  and at least two units from categories A and/or B and two units from categories C, D, and/or E  listed below. Only two of the four content courses may be from Tier 2.


Students must complete a minimum of three Psychology courses at Ohio Wesleyan to earn the minor. Credit/no-entry courses will not count toward either minor.

Students should consult with their academic advisor or the department regarding specific electives within psychology and elsewhere that might best complement their post-graduate career goals.

Checklists for the major and both minors can be found on the department’s website.

All psychology courses except PSYC 210 , PSYC 310 , and PSYC 420  will serve partially to fulfill Group I (Social Sciences)  distribution requirements for graduation.
