The Behavioral Sciences Department at Aims Community College offers students a wide range of instructional opportunities. Behavioral sciences include the disciplines of counseling, psychology and sociology. Students who are already interested in careers in teaching, government/public service, psychology, counseling and other related subject areas will find courses at Aims pave the way to employment in those fields.
The discipline of psychology is based on the scientific study of human behavior and thinking. The mission of the Aims Community College Department of Psychology is to engage those with whom we interact in meaningful participation with the educational process and in the discovery of psychological knowledge. We value students, faculty members, staff and administration from the diverse communities in which we exist. We actively support and strive to model the application of psychological knowledge toward the management of real-world environments and challenges and endeavor to promote effective citizenship in our society. Our intention is to create a culture that supports scientific inquiry and exploration of human behavior and thinking. We consistently evaluate and update our classes in the hope that we promote healthy relationships, environments and psychological functioning. Expertise in psychology is timely and valued by many employers. Students will sharpen critical thinking skills and deepen their appreciation for diversity and global learning. Earning a liberal arts degree with designation in psychology allows you to transfer to a participating four-year Colorado public institution.
