Welcome to the SKC Psychology Department
Welcome to the SKC Psychology Department.
The SKC Psychology department offers two degrees.
The Associate of Arts in Psychology is a two-year degree that will prepare you to go on for a Bachelor’s degree psychology or transfer to another program or college. It provides coursework in human behavior, communication skills, and general education subject areas.
The Bachelor of Arts in Psychology can be earned in two different ways, or tracks. If you are interested in graduate school in psychology, counseling, research or other fields, the Research Track is for you. If you want to finish your education with a Bachelor’s degree and work in a field that requires knowledge of human behavior combined with other skills, then you should follow the General Track. Differences between these two tracks have to do with types of coursework, but both require well-developed skills in writing and communication.
The Psychology degree program is grounded in the 4C’s: communication, cultural competency, citizenship, and critical thinking. Coursework draws from both Western and Indigenous models of learning, and the program is designed to meet the unique needs of tribal students who live and work in their home communities.
