Earn your Associate of Science online

You will earn the same diploma as our on-campus students

The Psychology A.S. degree program from Monroe Community College prepares you for a future in many fields - human services, operations, not-for-profit, or education. A two-year psychology degree also prepares you to transfer to a four-year college, where you can pursue a bachelor's degree in psychology or a related field. 

The benefit of a psychology degree is its universal application across careers and interests. A solid understanding of effective communication, user behaviors, and emotional responses prepare students for careers in industries not limited to therapy and counseling. Psychology graduates pursue marketing careers, management positions, community outreach, employee assistance programs (EAP), and non-profit work. 

The psychology curriculum at Monroe Community College lays the groundwork for a general understanding of psychology, from developmental and social psychology to research methods and statistics. You'll also have the opportunity to expand your knowledge with additional courses in the social and natural sciences, writing, and humanities.
