Minor in Industrial/Organizational Psychology

The minor in Industrial/Organizational Psychology requires 15 semester hours. Students who are also pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology may select Industrial/Organizational Psychology as one of their two minors: however, courses may not count toward both a major and minor. It is very important that students consult the advisor for this program regarding scheduling of courses because some courses are only offered once a year. Effective academic year 2013-2014, a minimum of 6 psychology hours, to include at least 3 upper division hours must be taken at MTSU to satisfy this minor.
