The interdisciplinary minor in Behavioral Research is designed for students who want more specialized instruction in research skills and data analysis. This interdisciplinary minor consists of 15 credit hours. Students select courses from the two categories of Statistics and Research Methods with the following provisions:

  1. A student may take no more than 6 credit hours of courses (or 7 credit hours if one course has a lab or is a 4-credit course) from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor;
  2. A student is limited to just 3 hours of credit (or 4 credit hours if one course has a lab or is a 4-credit course) toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major;
  3. Courses cannot be counted for both the major and minor; and
  4. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor.

If you have any questions about this minor, contact advisor.

Interdisciplinary Minors


Interdisciplinary minors require the student to complete a minimum of 15 to 21 hours from a list of specific courses. Unless otherwise noted, a student may take no more than 6 hours of courses from a single department until he or she surpasses the required minimum number of hours necessary for completing the minor. Exceptions to this rule may be found within the discussions of several of the minors. In most cases, a student is also limited to just 3 hours of credit toward the minor in the same department or discipline in which he or she is taking a major. Except for the Paralegal Studies minor, no course may be counted both for major and minor credit. Students must fulfill all departmental prerequisites for any course within an interdisciplinary minor. In some cases, advisors may approve course substitutions within these program requirements.
