Associate in Arts for Transfer, Psychology

The Psychology AA-T is intended for students who plan to complete a bachelor’s degree in a similar major at a CSU campus, but not to a particular campus or major. Students completing the AS-T degree in Psychology will be able to transfer to the California State University system.  Students are strongly encouraged to see a counselor if considering this transfer option.

This program leading to the AA-T degree is designed to provide students with general background knowledge in the field of psychology and they will gain a broader understanding of human behavior from various theoretical perspectives.
