PSY 301 • Intro to Psychology
9:00 AM-10:00 AM
Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. In this course we will examine current theories and key empirical findings from the following research areas: biological foundations of psychology, learning, sensation and perception, cognition and language, personality, abnormal psychology, and social behavior.
The course grade will be entirely determined by performance on four in-class multiple-choice exams (including the final). The first three exams have 40 questions each; the final has 80 questions, is comprehensive, and counts 40% of your course grade. On each exam, roughly half the questions will be drawn from the lectures and the other half will be drawn from the textbook.
