Alabama State University in Montgomery has announced the establishment of a new accelerated bachelor’s degree program in psychology. Students at three community colleges in Alabama will be eligible to enroll in the program. The students will be able to transfer 60 credit hours in general studies toward their bachelor’s degree at Alabama State. Over a 12-month period, students will earn another 60 credit hours with half the classes being taken online and the other half on the campuses of the community colleges.
