Course Overview and Objectives: This course is designed to provide you with a basic introduction to the diverse topics studied in the field of psychology, the scientific study of mental processes and behavior. Psychological areas introduced in this course include research methodology, behavioral neuroscience, sensation and perception, learning, developmental, thinking and language, memory, emotion, personality, abnormal, and social. This class will provide the opportunity to broaden your understanding of the science of psychology and to think critically about the application of psychology in everyday life. Material for this class will be presented both in class and in the textbook. Although there will be overlap, the class lectures will not merely repeat what you can read in the text, but will attempt to present you with a clearer understanding of the focal topics in the area, why these topics are considered important, and research/conclusions that psychologists have presented on the topics.
