Description

Psychology is the study of the mind that is our common and unique inheritance as human beings, the primary evolutionary strategy of our biological genus Homo. Psychology is an exciting but challenging field, where our understanding of ourselves as both conscious awareness and biological organism is constantly examined, challenged, and extended.

The major goals of this course are for you (1) to develop a naturalistic/scientific understanding of thought, feeling, and behavior, (2) to elucidate the structure and function of some important mental systems, and (3) to understand some basic implications of our nature and design as these bear on our conscious experience of the universe.

Major topics include the origin of the nervous system, its components and what they can do, how we respond to environmental challenges, how we think, why we have feelings, how we are influenced by others, and how we make meaning in our lives.  

Course Requirements:

Assessment involves, but is not limited to, written assignments, online work, and quizzes. Participation in the Psychology subject pool is required for course credit. Most students find this course challenging but interesting and informative.
