The Psychology minor is offered through Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.
This curriculum introduces students to the history and scope of psychological inquiry, helps them acquire a basic understanding of the scientific method and its application to psychological research, and trains them to critically evaluate and discuss
psychology texts. Learn more about the Psychology program.
