(2008). Psychology: Themes and variations, Briefer Version (7th edition). Belmont, CA: Thomson. Course Description : Psychology is one of the most fascinating courses offered at any university, in large part because psychological topics have applications in many facets of your everyday life. This class will provide a general introduction to the field of psychology, focusing on both theory and research. The course format will consist of lectures, readings, experience with research, and exams. Emphasis will be placed on gaining an understanding of the major concepts and research approaches in the different areas of psychology as well as the development of critical thinking skills in the application of psychological principles. One goal that I have for this course is that by the end of the class you will have gained a greater appreciation for the complexity of human behavior. It is also my hope that it will be impossible for you to view the world in the same way as you did when this course began. Learning Objectives : After completing this course, you should be able to: Identify and describe current scientific theory and research in the major topic areas of psychology Compare and contrast psychological principles, theories, and applications Evaluate and critically think about information concerning psychological phenomena obtained from research, the general public, and the media Recognize the role of psychological forces in your life and the lives of others, and develop an appreciation of the practical value of psychology Be well prepared for more advanced study in psychology Where To Go For Help Teaching Assistants : The teaching assistants are your first line of help. If you have questions about the reading or lecture material, want help reviewing concepts or preparing for an exam, or would like to review your last exam, contact one of the TAs. The TAs hold office hours at a variety of times during the week, and you can drop in any time during those office hours. The TAs are there to help you learn the material, so do not hesitate to go to their office hours if you need help. Please note, however, that the TAs’ job is not to provide you with notes if you miss a class. If you need notes, you will need to ask another student in class.
