Psychology Emphasis - A.S.

The Liberal Arts and Sciences Division of Sinclair Community College offers both the Associate of Arts (A.A.) and the Associate of Science (A.S.) Degrees . Both degree programs include the Ohio Transfer Module. The Ohio Transfer Module is a set of courses that are designed to transfer as a group to other public institutions in the state of Ohio; however, the courses may also be accepted by colleges and universities in other states. The A.A. and A.S. degrees are not intended to be terminal degree programs. Rather, they were designed to provide the student with the courses traditionally taken in the first two years of a four-year degree program in liberal arts and science.

Course requirements vary between the A.A. and A.S. degrees. As of this posting, specific program articulation information is not available online. The Liberal Arts and Sciences Counseling office plans to make this available online very soon. Contact a Liberal Arts and Sciences counselor for more information on this, or for more infomation about how psychology courses can apply toward your A.A. or A.S. degree program by calling (937) 512-5134.
