The Psychology major leads to an Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology. Psychology is defined as the scientific study of human behavior (including thoughts and emotions). The many and varied courses and areas of study in the Psychology Program provide a deeper understanding of the complexities of one’s own behavior; the behavior of family, friends, and co-workers; and the interactions among diverse people and groups. As with all programs, students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution should research the transfer institution's requirements and plan to complete the CSU GE Breadth pattern or IGETC GE pattern.
