If you are fascinated by how the mind works, and you like to help people overcome their problems, then psychology could be just the degree for you.
When you study psychology, you examine such things as personality, intelligence, motivation, mental disorders, memory, dreaming, hypnosis and biofeedback. You also explore how people’s everyday experiences affect their family, education, work and play. This pre-major program provides the general education requirements needed to transfer to a four-year university or college.
Whether your goal is to counsel people as a practicing psychologist—or you want to apply your psychology education to a career in business, marketing, social work or other field—this program can lead you to a wide range of career opportunities.
Out of state students please refer to the tuition of "non-resident with waiver" section of web catalog.
