The newest addition to the catalog of programs at Niagara County Community College is a Psychology, Associate in Science degree. This degree is offered in both a traditional classroom format and online as well. The online courses give students the opportunity to earn their degree with a flexible schedule and learning environment.
The Psychology curriculum has been curated for students who are interested in the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. The program was designed by a team of outstanding staff and advisors from the Humanities and Social Sciences department who also teach the Psychology courses. Committed to life-long learning, NCCC’s exemplary Psychology faculty members bring decades of research and field experience to the classroom. Professor of Psychology and Program Coordinator, Laura Scaletta, was recently involved with the production of a new textbook, Psychology in Your Life (Third Edition) by Grison and Gazzaniga, published by W.W. Norton & Company, Inc. She contributed as a principle reviewer for the book and web-based resources. In addition, Scaletta’s work as a professor at NCCC was featured on the Northeast Psychology Regional document, “Northeast Students Love InQuizitive for Psychology,” a resource that is disseminated to all colleges and universities across the United States.
The Psychology program is currently growing with the expansion of faculty and essential Psychology courses on the horizon. The curriculum currently offers introductory classes in general psychology as well as advanced subjects that investigate abnormal, developmental, social psychology, as well as methods of scientific inquiry. Graduates are prepared to transfer into baccalaureate programs with an aim to become counselors, therapists, psychologists, and researchers.
