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. The Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer is designed to prepare students for a seamless transfer into the CSU system to complete a baccalaureate degree in Psychology or similar major. Priority admission with junior status to the CSU system will be granted. Students completing this degree are exempt from Mendocino College Institutional Requirements.
