Double Majors and Minors

Many students decide that, in addition to Psychology, they would like to concentrate on a second area of study. Some will opt for a second major, others will choose a minor. The option taken is based on the degree to which the student wishes to delve into the second discipline. As you take various courses during your freshman and sophomore years at La Salle, you may find an area of study that you would like to explore to augment your focus on Psychology. Talk with your advisor about your interests and how best to pursue the major or minor. If you should decide to double major, you will need to meet with the chairperson of the Psychology Department and the chairperson of the department of the second major, to determine the set of courses which would satisfy the requirements for both majors. In addition, you will need to obtain a set of forms from the Dean's office for double majors. Again, the easiest first step to get the process moving is to meet with your advisor. If you wish to obtain a minor, you will need to meet with the chairperson of the department of the minor. In addition, appropriate forms must be obtained from the Dean's office. To minor, you need to take 6 courses in the area of the minor, only one can be 100 level and at least 2 must be 300 or 400 level. Once again, the easiest first step to get the process moving is to meet with your advisor.
