Human Science Courses

Human science courses


The AHTA requires 12 semester hours, and a minimum of four courses from the following list:


  • Developmental Psychology
  • Abnormal Psychology
  • Environmental Psychology
  • General Psychology
  • Human Growth and Development
  • Adult Development and Aging
  • Aspects of Disabilities and Illnesses
  • Group Dynamics
  • Principles of Therapy
  • Human Anatomy/Physiology
  • Medical and Psychiatric Terminology
  • Professional Ethics
  • Assistive Technology


The University of Phoenix offers Human Growth and Development (BSHS342) Abnormal Psychology (PSY410), Models of Effective Helping  (BSHS 312), Adult Development and Aging (HCS 433), and Anatomy and Physiology (HCS250).  The University of Phoenix courses are all on-line and asynchronous.  You don' thave to be on line at a certain time;  you just need to be on-line and submit comments and projects by specific deadlines.  U of P courses last five weeks (intense!) and involve on-line team work. 


Testimonial:  I've taken four courses there.  I really like the compressed time frame, and find the exchange between students on the discussion board very interesting and useful.  My contact for registration helped me make the first leap into class easily, and continues to make registration absolutely painless.   Not to mention, I'm learning A LOT!.  Beverly J.

Thomas Edison State College (http://www.tesc.edu/), an accredited distance learning college out of New Jesery that really caters to the adult learner. The offer many different ways to get college credit: online, guided study, e-pack, PLA, DANTES and TECEP.

In the human science area of study they offer...
Developmental Psychology (PSY-211), Abnormal Psychology (PSY-350), Contemporary Ethics (PHI-286), Biological Aspects of Aging (GER-412), ect...There are many other courses that I think would fall into this category but they are not title exactly as listed above. Possibly some of the others can be approved by AHTA before starting???

I have attended TESC for two years. My experience has been wonderful.
