Psychologists study mental processes and human behavior.

  • They observe, interpret and record how people relate to one another and the environment.
  • They look for patterns to understand and predict behavior.
  • They often concentrate on individual behavior and the beliefs and feelings that influence their actions.
  • As a psychologist, you can help increase understanding between individuals, groups, organizations and cultures. We provide courses covering various topics, from developmental psychology to courses on prejudice and death and dying.

Our psychology program is built around the Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree.

A master's or Ph.D. and a license are usually required for psychologists. This degree gives you a solid two-year background in general education courses that can transfer to a four-year institution.
