Associate of Arts: Psychology Areas of Specialization Certification


Daytona State College offers students who have declared Psychology as their major program code the opportunity to complete a General Psychology Track.  The General Psychology Track requires students to successfully complete 9 semester hours of Psychology courses which include General Psychology (PSY1012), Human Development (DEP2004), and Survey of Personality (PPE2001).  Additionally, students can further their studies in Psychology by completing a Specialized Psychology Track in one of four different applied areas.  Students can complete a Specialized Psychology Track in Marriage & Family (Relational) Psychology, Social Psychology, Clinical & Counseling Psychology, or Developmental Psychology.  Students who plan to major in Psychology at the baccalaureate level will be better prepared for the baccalaureate curriculum by completing one of these tracks.  Students who wish to complete a Specialized Psychology Track must successfully complete an additional 6 – 9 hours of specialized courses beyond the General Psychology Track.  Students who are interested in a Psychology Track should meet with an academic advisor early in their tenure at Daytona State College to establish an academic plan that will ensure that all program requirements will be met. For more information on this program, students should contact the department chair, Dr. Ron Morrison at (386) 506-3918, or the department assistant chair, Mr. Nick Petropouleas at (386) 506-3409.
