  • Career Information
    The Associate of Arts (AA) Degree with Designation in Psychology prepares the student to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree in Psychology.  Much of the course work for B.A and B.S degrees in Psychology tends to overlap (for example, social science requirements and core courses), but those with a BA degree are geared toward more modern scientific psychology--how we adapt to rapidly changing social and physical environments.  Students who opt for the Bachelor of Arts in Psychology can choose to work in the human services field (crisis intervention or case management) or in business areas (human resources, personnel or management). Once a BA is completed, students may pursue a higher degree in Psychology if interested.

    The Associate of Science (AS) Degree with Designation in Psychology prepares the student to transfer as a junior to a four-year institution in Colorado in order to pursue a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree in Psychology.  Much of the course work for B.A and B.S degrees in Psychology tends to overlap (for example, social science requirements and core courses), but B.S. degree graduates have a higher skill concentration in math, natural sciences and research methods.  Students majoring in Bachelor of Science in Psychology can find work with medical doctors, forensic psychologists, neuropsychologists, and biologists.
