Psychology (ASPIRE)

16 Months to a Degree in Psychology (on campus and online)

ASPIRE's Psychology degree is designed to accelerate your career path by delivering a basic understanding of the theories, methods and applications of modern psychology. You'll increase your understanding of human nature, as well as gain a foundation for further study at the graduate level.

  • On-Campus Program Structure

    ASPIRE's unique class structure is designed to accommodate busy adults. You'll take one class at a time — one night a week for 5 weeks, with each class designed to build on the knowledge gained in the previous class. In this way, you'll move through your degree program in a step-by-step, structured class schedule that allows you to focus your full attention on the material you need to know in your chosen field. It’s a process that optimizes learning, leading to greater assimilation and stronger retention of the knowledge and tools you need to compete in the marketplace.
