What You Learn as a Psychology Transfer Major
Study general, social, and developmental psychology. Learn why people behave as they do, whether in a group or as a leader. Discover the connection between physical, emotional, intellectual, and social evolution. Ace your statistical skills — you need those for research. Build a foundation in the social sciences and liberal arts.
What Can I Do With a Psychology Degree?

What are Transfer Majors
The Psychology Transfer Major is part of EICC's statewide Transfer Major associate's degree program. It was developed through a partnership between Iowa's community colleges, public universities, and many private colleges. It outlines the precise courses you need to complete if you want to transfer to a four-year college and study this specific major. The partner colleges and universities have approved the EICC courses, so all the credits you earn with us fully transfer toward your bachelor's degree. It's streamlined and simple.
If EICC is your first stop to a four-year degree, this is a great option!

2+2 = Savings
Here’s a secret: biology is biology no matter where you take the course. But the cost isn’t the same. Do your first two years at EICC and wipe out those required general education courses, then transfer to finish your Bachelor’s degree. The 24 months and 60+ credits you earn with us will cost less than one semester at most public or private universities. Save your money. High-quality and low-cost. That’s our niche.
