Earn a foundation for a variety of developmental, social, and abnormal psychology careers.
The Psychology A.S. degree program prepares you for a future in many fields - human services, operations, not-for-profit, or education. A two-year psychology degree also prepares you to transfer to a four-year college, where you can pursue a bachelor's degree in psychology or a related field.
The benefit of a psychology degree is its universal application to many fields. A solid understanding of effective communication, user behaviors, and emotional responses prepare students for careers in industries not limited to therapy and counseling. Psychology graduates pursue marketing careers, management positions, community outreach, employee assistance programs (EAP), and non-profit work.
The curriculum lays the groundwork for a general understanding of psychology, from developmental and social psychology to research methods and statistics. You'll also have the opportunity to expand your knowledge with additional courses in the social and natural sciences, writing, and humanities.
Graduates in psychology have a wide range of professional options available to them. This program will provide students with a foundation for courses in areas such as developmental, social, and abnormal psychology that will allow them to then transfer to a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor's degree in psychology.
