Psychology is a field that studies the human mind and behavior to better understand and explain interaction of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. In the study of psychology, students at Oklahoma City Community College learn how the human brain organizes and interprets information and how that interpretation affects a person’s perceptions and interactions with others. Students working toward an associate degree in arts in psychology also learn more about the complexities of the learning process, motivation and effects of stress on health in addition to understanding psychological disorders and treatments.
