Psychology is the study of people through an examination of their thoughts, emotions, and behavior. MiraCosta’s psychology program has a biological and physiological emphasis. Students are introduced to psychology, the science, developing a respect for systematic research and analysis. Students follow the principles of the scientific method and learn to write using American Psychological Association (APA. style). The psychology discipline provides the tools to efficiently and skillfully gather data and cogently examine the nature of human behavior. Students may take courses to prepare for a psychology major or to fulfill general education requirements.
Career options include a variety of positions in human services and business; teaching; research; counseling; clinical, school, or industrial psychology.
Laurie Andrews always knew she would one day give college another try. Andrews began her collegiate years more than 25 years ago at University of La Verne where she double majored in communication and French, but due to financial reasons she had to quit school. She was only a year shy of graduating. “The classes were amazing, it was comprehensive, and the instructors were excellent. I just loved it!“ she said. “After I finished my first semester, I decided to enroll in on-campus classes and learn more about MiraCosta.”Read More About Laurie-
