Psychology Minors

Mental Health Psychology Minor

To complete a psychology minor, students are required to take a minimum of 20 credits of psychology. Twelve of these 20 credits must be taken at Metropolitan State and 12 credits must be upper division. According to university general education policy, 12 credits of the minor may overlap with general education/liberal studies credits.

The mental health and psychology minor is designed for students who are interested in the theory and application of mental health issues. Such students might be interested in working with chronically mentally ill, wellness efforts, chemical dependency (with dual diagnosis), in social work positions or in areas of social services in which a working knowledge of mental health is essential. The minor fits well with other majors including social work and human services.
