Psychology instructors at Ivy Tech have a sound academic preparation in psychology and a wide variety of practical experiences in applying psychological knowledge in the workplace. The Ivy Tech psychology course curriculum is broad, ranging from Introductory Psychology to more specialized courses such as Human Sexuality, Abnormal Psychology, and Theories of Personality. Graduates will be awarded an Associate of Science in Psychology.
An Associate of Science in Psychology equips the graduate for employment in positions such as: Mental Health Assistant, Youth Counselor, Home Care Aide, and Addictions Rehabilitation Assistant. Many of our graduates will transfer to an Indiana-supported four year university and complete a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Graduates will also have the option of enrolling at a private institution that accepts our transfer pathway.
Graduates of our Associate of Science (AS) degree can seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution through our "Transfer as a Junior" program, entering at a junior status. To learn more about our Transfer as a Junior programs, and how they can save you money, visit our TSAP page. Please keep in mind, you will also need to be admitted to the four-year institution you intend to transfer to, admission is not guaranteed just by enrolling in a Transfer as a Junior program.
If you would like to continue your education after completing your Ivy Tech degree, we have several four-year transfer partnerships in place. Talk to your transfer advocate for more information about transfer opportunities!
