Primary Instructor:

Psychology is the study of the mind that is our common and unique inheritance as human beings. It is an exciting field, where our understanding of ourselves is constantly examined, challenged, and extended. The goals of this course are to familiarize students with basic psychological perspectives and theories, to consider the application of psychology to daily life, and to increase understanding of oneself and others.

Part one focuses on the embodied mind, and covers topics from the origins of mind to the role of the mind in maintaining the body. Part two focuses on the rational mind, and covers topics from learning through cognition and emotion. Part three examines the social mind, from the way we are influenced by others to the cognitive mechanisms we use to manage our relationships. The course concludes with an examination of psychopathologies and their treatments.

Assessment will involve three exams, quizzes, and written assignments.
