The undergraduate minor in educational psychology is open to all students enrolled in an undergraduate degree program. The minor provides an enriched background in educational psychology, educational testing, and research methods in education. It does not lead to certification for public school teaching. Students earning the minor select a department advisor, who helps them choose appropriate course work.
The minor requires 15 s.h., including at least 12 s.h. earned at the University of Iowa and 12 s.h. earned in courses numbered 3000 or above. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.50 in all courses for the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass. Transfer credit must be approved in order to count toward the minor.
