The curriculum in the Psychology program is designed to provide the transfer student the opportunity to achieve an Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer by providing the necessary breadth in the field, an introduction to the methods used, and the ability to complete both major preparatory coursework for psychology along with courses required for general education. Students who complete the Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer receive priority admission to the California State University system, though admission to a specific campus is not guaranteed. While an associate degree may support attempts to gain entry-level employment or promotion, a baccalaureate or higher degree is recommended for those considering professional careers, which can be achieved through transfer.
