Degrees & Certificates
The Associate of Arts degree in Psychology will give students a foundation for more advanced psychology courses and a foundation for optimal human interaction in the workplace and/or in their own personal relationships. Students who complete this degree will be prepared to transfer to four-year institutions with which an articulation agreement has been established. See the program learning outcomes listed under the AAT degree in this subject.
The Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended for students planning to transfer into a Bachelor of Arts program in Psychology or related areas at a California State University (CSU); guaranteeing admission to the system (but not to a specific campus), and priority consideration for admission to the equivalent CSU program. A student may earn an Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer (AA-T) Degree by completing 60-semester units that are eligible for transfer to the CSU, including 20 units in Psychology, Statistics or Mathematics, and/or Biology, 10-12 elective units, and either the Intersegment General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) or the CSU General Education Breadth (CSU GE) requirements, all with a grade of C or P or better and a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2. Students should consult with a counselor when planning to complete the degree for more information on university admission and transfer requirements. This degree complies with The Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act (Senate Bill 1440).
