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.

  • Differentiate among the major contemporary perspectives in the field of psychology.
