Psychology

The Blinn College District Psychology Program offers Associate of Arts and Associate of Science degrees in psychology and prepares students to transfer to a four-year college or university, where they can pursue a bachelor’s degree.

Students who pursue a psychology degree at Blinn learn from instructors who often are still practicing in the field and bring their real-world experiences into the classroom. Through the program, students develop their critical thinking, communication, and research skills, and learn to apply psychology to their daily lives.

Blinn’s associate degrees in psychology transfer into bachelor’s degree programs at four-year colleges and universities.
