I check email frequently (except on weekends and during university holidays) and will try to respond to questions within 48 hours. I may not be able to answer emails hours before an exam or deadline, so you should study ahead and contact me with important questions at least two days ahead of time. My office hours are Wednesdays 10:30am-12:30pm. If you can’t make those times, please email me to set up an appointment. In addition to the regular office hours, I’ll try to have extra office hours before exams, although I can’t guarantee them. Course Overview The primary purpose of this course is to introduce you to the complex and diverse field of psychology (the study of mind and behavior), including its methods, important theories, and major research findings. You will learn how psychologists think about and approach research questions such as: How do different parenting practices influence the development of young children’s consciences? What can brain damage tell us about the organization and functioning of the intact brain? How do social relationships influence mental and physical health? More importantly, through the study of psychology, you will learn how to think critically and apply these concepts to real-life issues. Course Objectives 1. Discuss and clarify issues and concepts raised in the lecture and readings 2. Develop critical thinking about concepts, theories, and methods in psychology 3. Apply psychological theories and concepts to real-life issues Course Expectations The best learning environment is a result of the efforts of both students and instructor.
