I am new to CartoDB and NOT a programmer. I am trying to make a simple torque map that changes by year and I do not want the slider text to include or display the month, just the year.

Is this possible to do with little to no programming?.

You need some programming to do that:

 cartodb.createVis('map', 'http://andrew.cartodb.com/api/v2/viz/b5cece38-4af4-11e3-bfb4-3085a9a9563c/viz.json')
        .done(function(vis, layers) {
          var slider = vis.getOverlay('time_slider')
          slider.formatter(function(d) {
            return "month:" + d.getUTCMonth();
