Psychology and Law Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs, Minors and Certificates


This interdisciplinary minor brings together courses in psychology that focus on the social, clinical, cognitive and societal aspects of psychology and how it relates to law. This knowledge is augmented with courses from the USC Gould School of Law that identify the relationship between mental health, social psychology and law.

Twenty-four units are required for the minor. A minimum of four courses (16 units) must be unique to the minor. A minimum of 16 upper-division units must be completed. Psychology majors and students majoring in social sciences with an emphasis in psychology may “double count” up to two courses toward the major and minor; however, they must take a minimum of four courses that do not apply to the major.

Lower-Division Requirements

Students must complete LAW 200w  or LAW 250  and PSYC 100Lg . (PSYC 100Lg  is a prerequisite to upper-division PSYC courses.)
