Modesto Junior College
Due to poor air quality, and in the interest of your health, Modesto Junior College is closing at 4 p.m., November 15, and will remain closed through Sunday, November 18. All classes and extracurricular activities on campus are cancelled during this time frame. The college will reopen and classes resume on Monday, November 19.


The Psychology program at Modesto Junior College offers an array of courses reflecting the breadth of the field.  We offer both transfer level and non-transferable courses in order to support a variety of student interests and goals.  Courses such as Psychology of Everyday Life (PSYCH 51) and General Psychology (PSYCH 101) provide an introduction to the facts and theories of psychology and also prepare students for additional coursework in psychology.  Other courses within our program cover topics such as research methodology, neuroscience, social behavior, psychological disorders, human development, and gender and sexuality.  These courses allow students to explore more specialized areas of interest and to prepare for university-level work in the field of Psychology.  Psychology majors are encouraged to take General Psychology (PSYCH 101) and Research Methods (PSYCH 102) in preparation for transfer to a four-year university.
