Course Description- Psychology

  • Psychology acquaints students with psychological theories, principles, and practices associated with the major subfields or domains, including Scientific Inquiry, Biopsychology, Consciousness Development and Learning, Social Interactions, Cognition, Individual Variations, and Applications of Psychological Science. The study of psychology requires a flexible, investigative classroom environment that allows for experimentation and participatory activities. Students are encouraged to use critical-thinking skills employed by psychologists in the practice of their science. They also apply knowledge of the brain and its functioning to the understanding of human behavior. As a general psychology elective, this course is particularly beneficial to students as they endeavor to understand themselves and others.
