What will I learn?

Are you fascinated by the human mind? How do you think? What is your thought process? Do you seek information about different personality traits? Most majors require you to develop research, writing and problem-solving and high-level thinking abilities that psychology classes provide.

Embrace the human experience as you study:

  • Mind-body connection
  • Politics of the workplace
  • Human sexuality
  • Clinical psychology
  • Abnormal psychology


Start smart! If you plan to go on to a four-year school to get a bachelor's degree, you can fulfill your general education psychology requirements for a fraction of the cost at JCCC. All general psychology credits are transferable to most four-year schools, including Kansas public postsecondary institutions.

Plus, you won’t get lost in the crowd. Some classes at four-year schools have 100 or more students in the lecture portion; at JCCC, 24 students is the average.

  • One-on-one attention. Smaller class sizes mean more individual attention from your professor, including easier access to office hours.
  • Your professor is teaching the lectures and the labs – no teaching assistants.
  • New active learning studios encourage group discussions, collaboration and an opportunity for more meaningful conversations
