Course Description

This course is intended to introduce a wide range of topics in human experience and behavior in particular, and science in general. This course is also intended to provide you with a sufficient general background for critically evaluating statements about human behavior as well as for upper division courses in psychology. This section will emphasize biological aspects of psychology, but not the exclusion of other perspectives. The lectures will focus on issues of human development, behavioral genetics, personality theory, behavior disorders, social psychology, language, memory, and cognitive and sensory processes.

Grading Policy

Your grade will be determined by the best 4 out of 5 exams, consisting of 50 multiple choice questions each.
