Department Overview

The Associates in Arts in Psychology degree program offers approximately 60 sections of Psychology classes each semester, in addition to those taught during the summer terms, and during interim terms. While most of our courses are taught in the classroom and thus provide face-to-face interaction with the professor and with other students, an increasing number of our classes are taught in the virtual classroom on-line. These classes are designed for the distance learner, as well as the student who prefers to work more independently.

Our program is designed to familiarize students with psychological concepts and perspectives from various sub-disciplines in Psychology. We encourage students to apply them to their understanding of the self, as well as to the social world. Through the process of gaining a "psychological imagination," students will acquire the abilities to explore the world critically, recognizing the complexity of human affairs, and to comprehend the relationship between individual experiences and biological, cognitive, psychodynamic, psychosocial and socio-cultural forces that shape their actions.

The Psychology degree program provides a course of study that enables students to acquire the knowledge and skills required to function effectively in the ever-changing work world, the social world,and in the world of advanced academia. Our degree program prepares students especially well to continue their education at the baccalaureate level and beyond.

While most classes are delivered using the traditional lecture venue, some level of access to a computer, and to the College utilized Learning Management System, Desire2Learn (D2L) is required. Free access to computers is available to all enrolled students in the Learning Resources Center (LRC), the Student Union Building, and in the academic division computer labs, including the Social Sciences Division computer lab.

Requirements

The Psychology degree program requires the completion of 27 credit hours of Psychology courses, and other related courses. Click here to view course requirements.

In general, this is an associate's degree program that lasts 4 semesters. While many students at the community college level are unable to complete a degree program in 2 years, our Psychology program offers its core courses during both the 8-week summer term and the 4-week summer term, during the interim terms, and as a 4-week weekend class. This flexibility enables students to complete the program requirements more quickly and conveniently.

What is required of a student?

The Associates in Arts in Psychology degree program requires students to complete all 39 credit hours of the general education requirements necessary for all degree programs. The Psychology program has 3 required core courses and 10 elective Psychology courses that students can choose from to meet the 27-hour minimum requirement. At the completion of this program students should be able to apply these concepts to everyday life situations, as well as exercise and expand critical thinking and communication skills to engender life-long learning, and thus amplify fulfillment in their personal and professional relationships.

What happens after graduation? 

Many of our graduates continue their educational journey on the baccalaureate level by transferring their degree credits to a 4- year college or university. Some of those students pursue a graduate degree as preparation for a career in Psychology. Others find their niche in the ever-changing work world, utilizing the knowledge and skills they acquired in the RSC Psychology degree program to make their contributions to the community and to society at large.
