About the Program

Psychology is a transfer program housed in the Social Science Division. Transfer programs are for students who plan to continue their education at a four-year college or university to earn a bachelor’s degree. Some students take psychology courses to fulfill the social science requirement for a transfer degree, others take psychology courses as part of a plan to major in psychology. Many students also take psychology courses as electives.

What Will You Study?

It includes many areas of study relating to brain functioning and development, sensation and perception, learning, memory, personality, human and animal development, social influences on behavior, abnormal behavior, therapy and interventions and health.
