ISBN-13: 978-0-7167-7927-8 Course Objectives: This course surveys the major concepts, theories, and research findings within most of the major sub-fields of Psychology. This course will provide a general background for students who have only one Psychology course in their undergraduate career, and the course will also function as a prerequisite for advanced courses in the Psychology major. Any student who is interested in pursuing an area in greater detail will find that almost all of the topics in this course are treated more fully in semester-long courses in the Psychology Department. Course Web Site & Study Recommendations: ANGEL has a link to the course website (I will announce this info in class once I have set up the website) in class). This site will contain valuable information for the class; all students are responsible for the material and announcements posted on this website, so please check it often. Students can also use the course website on ANGEL to contact me (I will announce this info in class & will have this info in the updated version of my syllabus website on-line). Some General Notes on E-mails, Questions, Class Attendance and All that Other Stuff: When contacting me via e-mail or coming to my office hours: o Please be sure to include your class name (Intro Psych) and main reason you are writing in the subject line (i.e., Intro Psych – Question about test schedule). I will be teaching several courses, and this will help expedite my response to you. o Please only e-mail me questions or requests that you would feel comfortable asking me in person . Just because I can’t see you, doesn’t mean you are not responsible for what you write.

General Psych, Syllabus, Fall 07, 2 o I will make an effort to reply to e-mails within 24 hours. However, if you must ask me something and can’t wait… I recommend coming to my office hour, or coming up to me directly after class. I am available for quick questions at that time. In fact, if your request requires more time than that, and you can’t make it to a scheduled office hour, I carry my PDA to class and will be happy to schedule an appt for you. o You do not need an appt to come to my office hours. These hours are specially designated for you, and I encourage you to drop by with any questions that you might have. This form of contact is the most immediate, and gets rid of the game of e-mail “tag” that often goes on when students are trying to get their questions answered in a hurry.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
