Program Description:

The Psychology Associate of Arts program is designed to provide a strong foundation for students ultimately seeking a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) degree in Psychology, a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Psychology, or other degree programs. The program offers students the chance to participate in a scientific review of psychology, complimenting most other major fields of study. The A.A. degree is an excellent first step to prepare for many careers, including administration, advertising, community relations, human resources, human services, marketing research, public relations, retail sales, and education.

The A.A. degree in Psychology provides a wide range of content areas, including Abnormal Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Human Development, Human Sexuality, and Social Psychology. Classes cover not only the theories within these areas, but also how these theories were developed and tested. The application of theory to real-world situations is emphasized throughout all psychology courses.
