The associate of arts degree with a concentration in psychology will provide students the option of completing at Stark State College the first two years toward a bachelor’s degree. Learning outcomes are aligned with the American Psychological Association’s learning goals and outcomes for the undergraduate student. While the proposed degree program is designed for transfer purposes, students with an AA in psychology could gain employment in positions that assist social and human service personnel with the services they provide to people. Job titles for someone with an AA in psychology include mental health aide, community outreach worker, life skills counselor, community support worker, youth worker, psychological aide, or gerontology aide.

The AA-psychology degree requires a minimum of 60 credit hours. All students must earn the minimum credit subtotal in English composition, social and behavioral sciences, arts and humanities, sciences, and mathematics.
