Associate of Arts in Psychology

The Psychology degree information on this page is provided for those students who have declared Psychology as their major prior to Fall 2021. No new Psychology majors are accepted into this program beginning in Fall 2021, as the program will be terminated effective Spring 2023. This information is provided to inform already-enrolled Psychology majors how to finish their degree before Spring 2023. Current majors should contact their advisor to plan their course work toward degree completion or transfer possibilities.

With psychology as your major, you have a world of options open to you. Most students who study psychology transfer to complete their four-year degrees and then master’s or professional degrees, and work as teachers, attorneys, health care professionals, public servants, government officials, business and civic leaders, counselors, personnel managers, ministers, mental health professionals, and a wide spectrum of other career fields.
