PSY 301 • Intro to Psychology
12:30 PM-2:00 PM
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.
The course grade will be based on three, 40-point, "hour" exams, each covering about one-third of the class material and a 120-point cumulative final exam. The final exam will be divided into three, 40-point sections, each representing one-third of the class material. 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. Also, for all students with hour exam scores, those scores will be compared with the corresponding sections of the final, and the higher of the two scores will be recorded both as the hour exam score and the final exam section score. A student may choose not to take the final exam and to have the scores for each of the hour exams count as the scores for the final exam sections. There will be no make-up for the final exam except in the most extreme cases such as hospitalization.
