The Psychology Program at College of DuPage

Welcome to the Psychology Program at College of DuPage

Why people do the things they do is a question that has been asked throughout the ages. The field of psychology tries to answer this question through the study of human and animal behavior.

In the College of DuPage Psychology program, students explore a wide range of psychology courses that can lead to a bachelor's degree at a four-year institution, career enhancement or personal fulfillment.

COD offers an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree for students who are interested in transferring to a four-year institution. Numerous College of DuPage psychology courses are completely transferable, based on Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) standards.

    "I was paying thousands of dollars a year to go to a four-year school that prided itself on small class sizes, teachers who knew your name and a sense of community. I didn't have any of those things until I came to COD, and it was a fraction of the price."
