Course Description

Basic problems and principles of human experience and behavior. Students will explore the diverse interests of modern psychology by concentrating on the research findings and competing theories which guide scholarship and service in the field of psychology.

Grading Policy

The course grade will be based on three, 80-point, "hour" examinations, each covering about one-third of the course material and an optional cumulative final exam worth 240 points for a possible course total of 480 points. The final exam will be divided into three, 80-point sections, each representing one-third of the course. If a student elects not to take the final the hour exam points will be doubled. For a student excused from an hour exam, the student's score on the corresponding section of the final will be assigned as a make-up grade. Students who have taken all hour exams may take only one of the final exam sections in an attempt to raise their grade.

All Psychology 301 students are required to serve as subjects in research being conducted in the Psychology Department or to write a research paper.
