Psychology - CCC
A flexible psychology program that works around your schedule
Alfred University, in collaboration with Corning Community College (CCC), is offering a Bachelor’s Degree completion program in Psychology with classes primarily on the CCC Spencer Hill Main Campus. This program is designed for students who are unable to attend traditional residential colleges due to everyday life circumstances such as work, family or the inability to relocate.
The Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology is a 62 credit, 22 month undergraduate program. This program is designed for students who are unable to attend traditional residential colleges due to everyday life circumstances such as work, family, or the inability to relocate. To accommodate students in these circumstances, classes meet on weeknights or Saturdays. Hybrid courses (a combination of direct contact class meetings and online class meetings) are incorporated into the curriculum to allow students to complete the program within 2 calendar years, providing a student follows the established sequence for a particular major. All students must complete one course in Alfred on the Alfred University campus to meet our residency requirement. This State Education Department approved program consists of courses specifically in the psychology major, as well as courses that fulfill general education and liberal arts requirements.
The program is designed for CCC students who have earned their Associate of Science Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences: Humanities and Social Sciences. For these students, CCC and AU have developed a transfer system that will allow CCC students admitted to the program to seamlessly continue on to AU courses offered primarily on the CCC Spencer Hill campus.
This degree completion program utilizes a cohort model: each student is assigned to a cohort of students in their degree program. This cohort stays together throughout the program, taking the same courses in the same sequence. [Actual courses and sequence are subject to change.]
