Consumer Psychology, Minor

The goal of the interschool Consumer Psychology Minor is to create a program that fosters the natural link between Psychology in the College and Marketing in Wharton. To fulfill the Minor in Consumer Psychology students must complete four courses from the Psychology Department in the College and four courses from the Marketing Department in Wharton, and the stats requirement. Both College and Wharton requirements will consist of core courses along with a set of elective courses. College students who wish to minor in Consumer Psychology must count two of the four required psychology (PSYC) courses towards only the Consumer Psychology minor (and towards no other major or minor).
