The Associate of Arts in Psychology program promotes an understanding of human behavior and mental functioning, while preparing students for entry-level positions in human services or continued study.

Why an Associate of Arts Degree in Psychology?

The AA in Psychology program is an excellent choice for students who wish to study human behavior while receiving a broad liberal arts education, which will equip them for the challenges of a modern, complex world. Students are prepared for their next phase: continuing toward their bachelor’s degree, or securing entry-level employment as a para-professional in a wide variety of human service settings. In the Associate’s degree program, students can complete most of their credits in general education while earning credits in psychology that are practical and professionally-oriented. They can emerge with excellent academic and interpersonal skills, and with a solid foundation in psychological theory and practice.

Why a Psychology Degree at Argosy University?
