This course is currently at capacity. We are admitting students to the waitlist only, and students who currently are on the waitlist will be given priority if places become available.
This course introduces basic concepts and research in the study of human behavior. A breadth of topics will be included such as: sensation and perception, emotions, memory, development, and psychological disorders. Lectures, readings (both textbook and academic journal articles), discussions, and field trips will combine to give you an overview of the scientific study of psychology across areas of inquiry. Several topics throughout the course will also include hands-on psychological research lab demonstrations. For the major project in the course, students, working in small groups, will develop and execute their own experimental research projects.
