Overview

Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology

Psychology is the scientific study of thinking, feeling, and action. 

Psychologists study the psychological, biological, and social bases of how we think, feel, and behave and use this knowledge to solve problems in the real world. 

As scientists, psychologists conduct research in many settings including universities, hospitals, government, schools, and corporations. 

As practitioners, psychologists apply the knowledge gained from research to solve personal, social, and practical problems.

The Associate Degree is designed to provide an educational experience that prepares students for work, citizenship, and an enriched life as an educated person, and to lay a solid foundation for further study in the field of Psychology.

Students with an Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology who are interested in continuing their degree studies at KPU can pursue the Bachelor of Applied Arts, Psychology degree, a Bachelor of Arts, Major in Psychology degree, a Bachelor of Science in Applied Psychology degree, or a Minor in Psychology when combined with another bachelor’s degree program.
