show description

This course is designed to give students a general overview of psychology, which is the scientific study of human behavior and cognition. Course topics will include, but are not limited to, the history of psychology, research methodology, understanding how genetics and biology relate to psychology, perception, motivation, emotions, and psychological disorders. My goal is for you to leave this class with a familiarity of the broad range of phenomena investigated by psychologists and an increased ability to understand and critique psychological research.
