Psychology is a broad and diverse field that seeks to understand, explain, and predict human behavior. A background of study in psychology can benefit students from many different majors, helping you to learn more about how and why people behave as they do.

In this program, you will have the opportunity to study with highly regarded faculty from Penn State's College of the Liberal Arts, one of the premier institutions in the world to study and work in the liberal arts disciplines. Penn State World Campus has partnered with Penn State’s Department of Psychology to offer a psychology minor designed to give you broad exposure to psychology as a scientific and professional discipline while complementing your primary major.

This minor is open to all interested undergraduate World Campus students who meet the prerequisites, and is most useful if you are majoring in business, labor and employment relations, or law and society.
