Minor Outside of Psychology
The minor is a secondary and optional area of interest for depth of study. It can be closely related to the major to serve as a support area, or it can be unrelated and simply an area of interest such as Sociology, History, English, Zoology, Foreign Language, etc. The department through which the minor is offered sets the requirements for the minor. Most minors at OU consists of about 18 hours of requirements, although this is variable. For requirements for specific minors, you can consult OU's General Catalog or the department of your minor. The minor is not a requirement but an option for interested students. If you want to earn a minor, you must declare the minor at the College of Arts and Sciences (PHSC 429) so it will be recognized on your degree.
