About the Program

Psychology Transfer Pathway AA Degree

The Psychology Transfer Pathway AA degree offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an associate degree whose course credits will directly transfer to designated Psychology bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities. The entire curriculum has been carefully designed to guarantee junior-year status to students who have been admitted to one of the seven Minnesota State universities. There, students can complete their bachelor’s degree by earning 60 additional credits.

Minnesota State universities include: Bemidji State University; Metropolitan State University; Minnesota State University, Mankato; Minnesota State University Moorhead; Southwest Minnesota State University; St. Cloud State University; and Winona State University.

Transfer Pathway degrees may transfer to colleges and universities outside of the Minnesota State system, such as private and out-of-state schools. It is highly recommended that students interested in this possibility contact their intended transfer school, advisor/counselor, and program instructors for academic planning assistance.

Psychology Discipline

The Century College Psychology Department offers a wide range of courses that focus on psychology as a scientific discipline. Courses include: general psychology, abnormal psychology, developmental psychology, neuroscience, statistics, human adjustment, psychology internship, and more.

Our courses focus on studying human behavior and development in the context of a diverse and rapidly changing world. We use a mix of lecture, discussion, and hands-on activities to encourage students to apply the science of psychology to real-life situations.

The Psychology department includes faculty with a wide range of experiences, including clinicians, researchers, textbook authors, and recipients of teaching awards. 

Students can take individual Psychology courses to meet Liberal Arts and Sciences requirements for an Associate in Arts Degree (AA), Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC), or to transfer individually to two- and four-year colleges and universities.

Additionally, the Mental and Behavioral Health Worker Certificate provides psychology coursework that applies to a variety of entry-level careers in mental health.
