The TMCC Psychology Program offers engaging and varied classes to meet the academic needs of students majoring in many different areas and the diverse interests of our surrounding communities.


The Psychology curricula is intended to provide both an effective academic background for those students pursuing more advanced academic goals (such as General Psychology, Introduction to Neuroscience, and various research methods classes), and lifelong learning experiences through specific topics such as Psychology of Personal and Social Adjustment, Human Sexuality and Psychology of the Family.

Psychology offers two pathways for students pursuing transfer to four-year universities as follows:
