The Minor in Psychology consists of 21 units. Students majoring in Child and Adolescent Development (CHAD) interested in the Minor in Psychology will need to take 12 units in Psychology coursework that do not count for CHAD. This will provide CHAD students with additional breadth in Psychology.
Special Conditions for the Bachelor of Arts and Minor in Psychology
All courses counted toward the major, including Preparation for the Major courses, and the minor must be completed with a grade of C (2.0) or better. No more than a total of three (3) units of either PSYC 498 or PSYC 499 may be applied toward the major or minor. No more than three (3) units of PSYC 495 may be applied toward the major or minor. PSYC 356 may satisfy the Developmental Core, but it does not serve as a prerequisite for the PSYC 395 laboratory course. A minimum of eighteen (18) units counted toward the psychology major must have been completed at Cal State San Marcos. For the Minor, nine (9) units must have been completed at Cal State San Marcos. Students majoring in Child and Adolescent Development (CHAD) or Human Development may not satisfy the lab requirement for the Psychology Minor with PSYC 395. Courses taken at other universities for which we do not have articulation agreements will not be counted toward the major or minor at Cal State San Marcos without the written permission of any member of the Psychology faculty listed above.
