Academic Preparation for Psychology Majors

For students aspiring to major in psychology, we strongly encourage the completion of foundational coursework in the sciences and mathematics, in addition to a core set of basic psychology courses. We recommend that students pursue the Associate in Arts degree before transferring to a four-year institution, as this provides a solid educational foundation for further studies in psychology.
