OBJECTIVES Welcome to Introduction to Psychology. In this course we will explore the complex worlds of mind and behavior. The primary focus of this course will be on your learning about, and thinking critically about what psychologists know about people. In the science of psychology the unknown greatly exceeds the known. Thus, you will also learn that there remains much work to do in trying to understand and explain how and why we do what we do. Finally, much of what makes psychology interesting is that it is relevant to our personal lives. In this class you will learn to view and to understand your own behavior, emotional life, thinking, etc., as well as that of others, from a psychological perspective. MATERIALS Required text: Weiten, W. (2008). Psychology, themes and variations: Briefer version, ( 7th ed.) Wadsworth. (A study guide comes bundled with the text). Available at Durham Book Exchange.
