Psychology

Students planning to major in Psychology are committed to solving some of life's most intriguing mysteries. Whether one is interested in mental health, how the brain works, social relationships, cognitive processes, developmental and change processes, or quantitative methods for understanding behavior, a Psychology degree provides unique opportunities to explore what it is to be human.

Students in SCC’s Psychology program earn an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science (depending on whether they are pursuing a Bachelor or Arts or a Bachelor of Science degree), which prepares them for transfer to a four-year program. If students follow the correct transfer path, they enter transfer partner universities as junior.
