Psychology can be defined as the science of behavior, cognitive and
brain processes. At
Grossmont College, students gain a broad understanding of the field
by completing courses across a range of psychological disciplines.
We offer a broad range of courses including general introduction to
psychology, statistics, human sexuality, developmental, learning,
physiological, social, cross-cultural and abnormal psychology.
An understanding of the spectrum of psychological knowledge,
methods, and concepts facilitates and enhances productivity in
virtually every area of human endeavor, and promotes interpersonal
skills and sensitivities. Additionally, the emphasis on the
scientific approach to psychological study serves to enhance
critical thinking and reasoning skills. Although psychology is a
general interdisciplinary arts major, some undergraduates major in
psychology in preparation for graduate school, where they will be
trained to become professional psychologists and scholars. Others
use psychology as a pre-professional major for other fields, such as
law, medicine, or business.
