Primary Instructor:

Psychology is the study of the mind that is our common and unique inheritance as human beings. 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. Major topics include the origins of mind, neurons and what they do, how we adapt to the world around us, how we remember (and why we sometimes misremember), how we think, why we have feelings and what they do for us, how we are influenced by others, how the mind can break down, and what we can do about it.

Assessment will take the form of quizzes, class presentations, and written work. Participation in the Psychology subject pool is required for course credit.

Note:
Although the loose-leaf version of the textbook is recommended, the hard-cover version is identical (but heavier to carry to class). Which textbook you purchase (and whether you purchase one at all) is ultimately your decision, but assignments are given from the required textbook only, and you will be responsible for this material.
