Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes.  Psychologists use rigorous, scientific methods to conduct research studies and experiments with the goals of describing a behavior or mental process, explaining the underlining causes of it, predicting conditions under which it is likely to occur, and applying psychological knowledge to help people change behavior and mental processes to bring about desired goals.  Graduates are well-equipped to transfer and complete a Bachelor of Arts or Science degree in psychology and prepare for a career in a variety of areas including counseling, education, health, research, school psychology, and social work.
