Doctoral Minor Program

Educational Psychology

The Ph.D. minor in Educational Psychology for students majoring outside Educational Psychology consists of a minimum of 9-course credits (with additional credits in EDP 599 or EDP 699 possible) as determined by the minor advisor. Requirements for the minor include: 

  1. A minimum of 9-course credits in Educational Psychology
  2. A comprehensive exam document related to the minor specialization 

The Graduate College requires an examination in the ‘subject’ that is represented by the set of minor courses. There are several options for the written minor in EDP, and the advisor has the freedom to suggest options that fit a particular situation.

Note: The subject of the minor does not need to be totally contained within EDP and thus testing over all the ‘courses’ taken in the subject is not required.
