Minor in Psychology
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and its functions. A minor in Psychology at Belmont Abbey College can give you the tools needed to better understand the mind so you can more effectively interact with and assist others. Psychology is an effective resource for a variety of careers, including social work, teaching, law enforcement, and human resources.
Fifteen (15) credit hours of Psychology beyond the core curriculum as approved by the department chair.
Students who take PC 201 to satisfy the Social Science core curriculum requirement must take an additional 15 credit hours of upper level PC courses to earn the minor. Students who take a course other than PC 201 to satisfy the Social Science core curriculum requirement may take PC 201 and an additional 12 credit hours of upper level PC courses to earn the minor.
The preponderance of the courses for the minor must be taken at Belmont Abbey College.
Certain majors are usual precursors to law school. We recommend majoring in English, History, or Government and Political Philosophy, because these disciplines hone the particular skills needed for success in law school. However, since a high cumulative grade point average in a student’s undergraduate studies considerably improves his or her chances for admission to any law school, students should major in any field that genuinely interests them and in which they excel.
