Psychology is an incredibly diverse, fascinating field. This course will provide you with a foundation for potential further study in the field of psychology.
We will use a scientific approach in exploring psychology – the thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that make up so much of human life – and its many sub disciplines, including biological psychology, learning, altered states of consciousness, human development, human memory and emotion, personality, social behavior, and psychological disorders & treatment. What unites many psychologists from various, diverse perspectives is the common goal of understanding behavior (broadly defined) and using scientific methods toward this end. Each sub discipline brings its own unique perspective to this challenge.
By examining various fields of study within psychology, as well as their interactions, you will also have the opportunity to develop and hone a range of critical and conceptual thinking skills. Whether or not you decide to pursue additional study in the field of psychology, these skills will expand your capacity to examine evidence and draw your own conclusions about a variety of important issues.
