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. Courses are available in-person (day and evening) and online.
The minimum time to complete the Associate of Art degree or Associate of Science degreeis four full-time (15-16 credit hours) semesters for students who have no pre-existing college credit.
Currently, the program cost for an AA or AS degree for Psychology students is $5,288. This includes tuition and course fees for Psychology courses. Books and course fees in other classes outside of the Psychology program are not calculated. However, to assist our students, many Psychology courses utilize Open Educational Resources and/or low cost textbooks to minimize textbook costs.
