Liberal Arts - Psychology 64-65 Credits

Why study the Liberal Arts?
A Liberal Arts education helps students develop strong and ordered minds as they explore the world’s collected wisdom in literature, history, mathematics, science, philosophy and the arts. It teaches them to recognize and construct arguments, to appreciate diverse cultures and perspectives, and to have a sense of scholarship about the lives and events that have gone before. Liberal Arts emphasis on language helps students broaden their cultural perspective and become more aware of their own identity. Courses comprising a Liberal Arts education at Middlesex County College are the core of all liberal arts programs at the bachelor’s level. Students may select the general degree, the most flexible of all our Liberal Arts programs, or one of the many specialized options.

Are there any requirements that must be satisfied before taking courses in the major?
Algebra I is a prerequisite for all majors. Competency in Algebra I may be verified with a passing score on the College’s placement test or by completion of the appropriate course. Students must also have a grade of “C” or better in one year of high school laboratory science.

How long will it take to complete this degree?
Once students complete required developmental coursework (if any), the degree can be completed in two years of full-time study. Students may shorten the amount of degree completion time by taking courses in the summer and winter sessions.

Earn Your B.A. in Psychology on MCC's Campus

Middlesex County College graduates will now be able to earn a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from Felician University by taking classes on the MCC campus.

Middlesex graduates receive a 40 percent scholarship applied to full-time tuition, which is 12-18 credits per semester. Students may qualify for additional financial aid. The program is not limited to psychology majors, but non-majors must take Introduction to Psychology before starting the program and two specific electives during their first year.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for our graduates to complete their psychology degree at a prestigious university without leaving the Middlesex campus,” said Brian Clemmons, dean of enrollment management at MCC. “In addition, Felician offers a combined B.A. and M.A. in psychology degree in which our graduates may be interested.”

Courses held at MCC are offered in the afternoon or evenings; students completing at least 15 credits per semester should be able to graduate from Felician within two years. The university also features a chapter of Psi Chi, the psychology honor society; a study-abroad option; and independent research in the student’s senior year.
