College - January 22nd 2010, 11:32 PM

I want to transfer to a college. Right now I am currently at a city college and I cannot wait to go to a 4 year college. But, I really do not want to move out of my state (which is california) and I am wondering if anyone knows of any good colleges in the state (that has a program for Psychology).

Of course I know about all the public colleges (such as UCLA and UC Davis) but I am also wondering about Private colleges.

Any thing that you could provide would be great.

There are, according to the college board, 78 four year colleges that offer a major in general psychology.

Do you want to major in a specific aspect of psychology? There are tons of defferent ones, like educational psychology, social psychology, health psychology, plus a whole myriad of ones that I've never heard of.

Clinical/forensic psychology is what I am planning on going into.

I couldn't find any schools in CA with either of those specific majors.

I just went on www.collegeboard.com and did the college matchmaker, it's like the best thing ever when looking for schools. It's really the only website I ever used because I know it's reliable, the college board is the one that runs the SAT and AP exams and such.

As you know my permanent residence is Cali, but I left to go to school. For many reasons I think you should consider as well. The school system, as you know, is falling apart, they are loosing money left and right. So they are cracking down on how many students they accept every year. I am sure you are already aware you can’t even transfer into the spring semester anymore. Plus each county has different rules about transferring from community colleges. Like in San Diego, I know you have to have 60 very specific units, and if you don’t, they will decline you. I think you have a lot of research a head of you if you are trying to get into this upcoming fall semester.
And I think it would be good for you to just entertain the idea of going out of state. I know it can be more expensive. But, one, it’s an experience of a life time to live outside of California. And I know native Californians hiss at anyone who tries to even suggest they leave, but it is worth thinking about. And two, the school systems are actually thriving outside of California right now, and are accepting more and more students. So you might be able to get into a program that you are really interested in.
Now I did the same thing, I went to community college for two years and transferred. And I have a lot of friends who are doing the same, and they are having a really hard time doing it in Cali. So, if you have any questions, feel free to PM me. : )
