About our Program
Associate in Arts
Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes. Simply put, it's an exciting field that helps us understand who we are, what we think, how we feel, and why we behave the way we do. The many sub-fields of psychology - abnormal, developmental, social, personality, and more - make it applicable to most every major, occupation, or personal experience.
A degree in psychology from OCCC not only prepares students to continue their education at a four-year college or university, but also provides students with the basic knowledge of psychological principles they can apply in their chosen careers and everyday life situations.
Approved Online Degree Program
Students can earn their Associate in Arts in Psychology completely online.
We offer many scheduling options to fit your busy life so you can complete courses in a more flexible time frame. From on-campus 8-week and 16 -week classes, to zoom, hybrid, and online classes. There is a class format tailored to your needs.
