Associate of Arts - Specialization in Psychology 

Explore human nature and turn your passion into a college degree.

Begin with an Associate of Arts (DTA) degree with direct transfer into a Bachelor program in Psychology. The public community colleges and the four-year colleges and universities of the State of Washington have an established Direct Transfer Agreement. That agreement allows students who hold the Associate of Arts (DTA) degree to transfer to four-year institutions for the purpose of satisfying most or all of the general education requirements of the receiving institution.

Where can I transfer?

Students can transfer to a number of public and private colleges and universities in the U.S., but the Direct Transfer Agreement applies only within Washington state. Our faculty advisors can help you plan your coursework for transfer.

Contact the Psychology department at your chosen four-year school(s) for more information:
