Psychology Department

The goal of the psychology program at Saddleback College is to provide a comprehensive introduction to the science of psychology for both students whose major is psychology and those taking psychology courses to fulfill general education requirements. We provide high quality instruction in courses which meet transfer requirements for many four year institutions. Further, personal growth and insight fostered through coursework in psychology will provide students with a repertoire of skills to relate to the culturally diverse world in which they live...
