OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. (Jan. 30, 2024) – Oklahoma City Community College’s online associate degree in psychology has been named one of 2024’s “Best” by Forbes Advisor.
OCCC’s program is one of 10 nationwide on the Forbes Advisor list of Best Online Associate Degrees In Psychology of 2024, released online Jan. 18.
“Oklahoma City Community College is honored to receive this national recognition from Forbes Advisor,” said OCCC President Dr. Mautra Staley Jones. “Offering more than 87 degree and certificate programs, OCCC focuses on providing students with flexible learning options that meet their needs.”
In its web post, Forbes Advisor said it picked OCCC because learners can engage with an online Associate of Arts in psychology as a pathway to entry-level roles or continued bachelor’s-level study in the field.
OCCC’s low tuition costs for in-state and out-of-state students, distance delivery methods, and student organizations and services such as the Psychology Club, Psi Beta National Honor Society, and the online Psychology Lab were all factors influencing Forbes Advisor’s decision.
“Rigorous online learning at Oklahoma City Community College is one of our pathways to student success,” said Dr. Juanita Ortiz, vice president of academic affairs at OCCC. “We are thankful to Forbes Advisor for recognizing our online psychology program as one of the best in the U.S.”
