PSY 301 • Introduction To Psychology

87240 • Summer 2010
Meets MTWTHF 1130am-100pm NOA 1.116
show description

Instructor: Jacqueline (Rivers) Evans

Instructor Email: Jacqueline@mail.utexas.edu

Prerequisites
A passing score on the reading section of the TASP test.

Course Description
The purpose of this class is to explore the science of psychology from multiple perspectives (e.g., biological, developmental, social, clinical, etc.) with emphasis on the major themes, theories and issues. In addition, you will learn to think critically about research in psychology and to apply research findings to your observations about the behavior of individuals and groups.

Course Requirements
All Psychology 301 students must complete a research requirement by either participating in experimental sessions within the Psychology Dept. or by writing a research paper.

Grading Policy
The course grade will be based on three, 60-point, "hour" in-class examinations, each covering about one-third of the course material. The final exam is optional and will be divided into three, 60-point sections, each representing one-third of the course.  Students who have taken all hour exams may take only one of the three final exam sections in an attempt to raise their score on that section.  Students with excused absences from hour exams may take the corresponding sections of the final exam as a make-up grade.  If a student elects not to take the final the hour exam, their three hour exam scores will remain the same.

The three 60-point exams are worth 30% each (total exam grade will count for 180 points, and 90% of your final course grade). There will also be several writing assignments: 1 journal article summary (2 pages) that is worth 4% (8 points), and 3 thought papers over assigned readings (1 page each) that are worth a total of 6% (12 points) of your final course grade.
