Psychology is the study of the mind and behavior. The Psychology program at Northwest College offers students an overview of the field, including classes in the biological, social, clinical, and developmental nature of behavior. Psychology students pursue a wide variety of careers and transfer opportunities.
This program allows students to specialize in psychology while working on an associate of arts degree. Students must successfully complete core courses with a “C” or better to meet program requirements. Students planning to transfer to a four-year program may need to have additional hours beyond the program requirements at Northwest College in order to transfer in as a junior. These students should consult with their advisor and the appropriate four-year college catalog.
Total General Education Requirements: 26-28 Credits
Core and Elective courses taken as part of completion of a degree program may also be used to meet General Education requirements where applicable. Please note that use of these courses to meet General Education requirements may reduce the number of hours required to complete a degree, however that number cannot be reduced below the institutional minimum of 60 credits.
