The Behavioral Research minor is designed to provide more specialized instruction in research skills and data analysis and is appropriate for students planning careers emphasizing research and/or quantitative analysis including students majoring in fields such as psychology, sociology, political science, marketing, and mathematics. This minor may be particularly attractive to students wanting to pursue graduate work. The minor in Behavioral Research requires 15 semester hours.
No more than 7 credit hours in a single department may count toward the interdisciplinary minor unless the student surpasses the required 15 hours necessary for this minor.
No more than 7 credit hours may be taken toward this minor in the same department or discipline in which a student is majoring.
Courses will not be counted for both the major and the minor.
A student who is majoring in any of the areas listed in the Basic Statistics category or the Basic Research category and is taking any course in the category as a part of his or her major requirement may take no more than 3 credit hours (or 4 credit hours if taking the course with a lab) from other departments in that category.
