Social Psychology

Department of Psychology, College of Social and Applied Human Sciences.

Social Psychology focuses on the ways in which human experience is grounded in social interactions and social relationships. Although this Minor was designed for any student seeking to broaden their knowledge beyond their Major area of study, it may be of particular interest to students who are considering future careers in human service fields such as Social Work, Counseling, Criminology, and Occupational Therapy. The program may also be of special interest to students associated with the Collaborative Diploma Program in Public/Private Sector Administration, and students in the Career Development Practitioner's Certificate Program.
