PSY 301 • Intro to Psychology
11:00 AM-12:00 PM
An introductory review of the major subdisciplines and methods of psychological science. Students learn about a variety of problems and topics studied by psychologists, such as stress and health, lifespan development, mental health and therapy, social psychology, sensation and perception, multicultural perspectives, and ethics. An emphasis is placed on real-world examples, and applying psychology to one's own life. The hope is that the students will come away from the class with a more developed understanding of themselves and their world.
Four in-class multiple-choice exams, all of which will be non-cumulative. There will not be a final exam in this class. There will be some extra-credit opportunities, mostly based on attendance.
