About this course
The Psychology Program, leading to an Associate in Arts Degree, is designed to prepare students to continue the study of psychology at a four-year institution with a background to sufficiently prepare them for more advanced study. Each four-year college or university determines which BC3 courses are acceptable in transfer. Students should contact the institution for assurance prior to registering for the course at BC3.
The student/graduate will be able to:
- Identify the eras associated with the major schools of thought in the history of psychology.
- Differentiate among the major contemporary perspectives in the field of psychology.
- Cite the characteristics and age-related changes associated with developmental psychology including physical, social, and cognitive development.
- Enumerate basic research methods, including advantages and disadvantages.

- If English is not your native language, you must submit TOEFL test scores at minimum of 61 on the Internet-based or IELTS scores at a minimum of 5.
