Psychology Transfer Pathway Program Outcomes

The Psychology Transfer Pathway AA offers students a powerful option: the opportunity to complete an Associate of Arts degree with course credits that directly transfer to designated Psychology bachelor’s degree programs at Minnesota State universities.

The curriculum has been specifically designed so that students completing this pathway degree and transferring to one of the seven Minnesota State universities* enter the university with junior-year status. All courses in the Transfer Pathway associate degree will directly transfer and apply to the designated bachelor’s degree programs in a related field.

Upon completion of an RCTC Psychology course, students will achieve the following outcomes:
• Demonstrate familiarity with the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, and empirical findings in psychology.
• Describe research methods in psychology.
• Apply psychological principles to personal and social needs.
