  • Multicultural Psychology, Diversity, and Inclusion Minor requirements (click for checklist)
    • The goal of the minor in Multicultural Psychology, Diversity, and Inclusion is to prepare graduates to apply concepts, investigative tools, and theories from multiple disciplines to the study of diversity. This will prepare students in the minor to work, live, and understand the perspectives of others in a diverse world, and apply these concepts and findings to applied and/or empirical work with diverse populations. Through exposure to multiple types of diversity, students will develop an understanding of the many components of diversity, as well as the normative and institutionalized power dynamics that are relevant to these forms of diversity.
  • Cognitive Neuroscience Minor requirements (click for checklist)
    • Cognitive neuroscience is a young field (Mike Gazzaniga, considered the godfather of cognitive neuroscience, and George Miller, a founder of the field of cognitive psychology, coined the term in 1977) that uses techniques and theories from several disciplines, including cognitive psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy as a means to understand how the human brain creates the mind. UCA graduates with a minor in cognitive neuroscience will be able to demonstrate to employers and graduate school admissions committees that they have multiple interests and skills and can use a variety of intellectual tools to solve complex problems. Careers in cognitive neuroscience include telecommunications, medical analysis, computer-human interaction, artificial intelligence, linguistic analysis and human performance testing.

      Students completing the cognitive neuroscience minor will be able to:

      • Develop strategies to solve complex problems creatively and flexibly
      • Effectively communicate via spoken, written and electronic media the principles and concepts of brain and mind to scientists, other students, and the public
      • Cultivate a basic understanding of the major sub-disciplines of cognitive neuroscience
      • Design behavioral and neuroscientific experiments to reveal mental mechanisms
      • Synthesize research findings from two or more disciplines in the cognitive neurosciences
  • Sports Psychology Minor Requirements (click for checklist)
    • Sports Psychology is a growing area of interdisciplinary professional practice in the United States. Professionals working in sports psychology settings are expected to have an understanding of both the psychological and physical aspects of sports performance. This minor will expose students to the two different perspectives on sports performance, as well as the knowledge and skills to work with health professionals from diverse backgrounds. These abilities are critical to success in the highly diverse and integrated landscape of modern health care services.
