Applied Psychology - Supervisory Services (AAS)

College of Southern Nevada

The Applied Psychology Program develops the competencies needed for careers specializing in mental health, aging, addiction, disability and child/family services among others. The associate degrees and certificate within our program prepares students to be direct support professionals (DSPs) and provide guidance and support to people who need help to be self-sufficient. DSPs provide this support to a wide range of individuals including people with physical, psychiatric or cognitive disabilities or chronic illness, children and youth who are at risk and families who need assistance in supporting family members.
