Psychology (A.A.)

Program ImageDescription

Do you constantly find yourself asking “why” or “how”? If so, you have something in common with ancient Greek philosophers like Socrates, Plato, Aristotle, and Homer. All asked questions about life and the mind. What is the relationship between mind and body? How do we know if the world is really what we think it is?

Today's psychologists study many fascinating questions. Why is learning a language as an infant easier than as a teenager? What are the roots of violence? What is the best way to help someone with an eating disorder?

Psychology is defined as the science of mental processes and behavior. With a degree in Psychology, you learn all about the mind and more, including theories of development, learning, cognition, and behavior!
