Broaden your understanding of the human mind or lay the groundwork for a career in
psychology with coursework at Collin College.
Collin psychology coursework features a variety of introductory courses exploring the principles of behavior and mental processes. Course offerings include general psychology, life-span psychology, human sexuality, psychology of personality and social psychology. These courses emphasize psychological theory and research, the historical context of the development of the field and the use of psychological concepts as a tool for better understanding what it means to be a human being.
An Associate of Arts degree with coursework in psychology serves as a foundation for continued studies in the discipline. Because most careers in psychology require an advanced degree, many students transfer to a college or university to complete the bachelor’s degree and apply for admission to a graduate program in psychology.
To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements. Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor degree at the transfer institution.
