Associate Degree for Transfer. A Degree with a guarantee.

The Associate in Arts in Psychology for Transfer (AA-T) Degree is intended to meet the lower division requirements for Psychology majors (or similar majors) at a CSU campus that offers a Psychology baccalaureate degree.  The Rio Hondo College Psychology Department has two cohort opportunities for students: the Emerging Professionals in Psychology Cohort and the Transfer Degree in Two: Psychology Cohort.

This degree is designed for students interested in an introduction to the field of psychology and for students looking to further their understanding pf the biological, psychological and environmental influences that guide human behavior.  These courses will provide students with solid foundation in psychology that will serve them for either transferring or in the workplace.

  • Students will compare and contrast the experimental method to other types of inquiry.
