PSYCHOLOGY 100 (SECTION 002) BASIC CONCEPTS IN PSYCHOLOGY Instructor : Keith Renshaw Phone : (703) 993-5128 Office : David King Hall, Room 2052 Email : [email protected] Office Hours : Mon 2:00-3:00; Tue 1:00-2:00 Meeting Times : TR 12:00-12:50 Room : Innovation Hall, Room 103 Required Materials : Laura A. King – The Science of Psychology: An Appreciative View Course Overview : This course will provide a general overview of the field of psychology, which at its core, focuses on explaining people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Psychology covers all kinds of human experience: how the brain works, why we dream, psychological disorders and how to treat them, why we forget some things (like a birthday or anniversary) but remember others (the name of our 2 nd grade teacher), why we get into (and out of) relationships… All of this information deals with how and why people think, feel, and act the way they do. The class will not just be about learning this information – it will also be about learning how to think critically about the material and apply it in your own life (do so with a bit of caution, though – friends don’t always enjoy being analyzed with the newest information you’ve learned). Psychology is very broad; therefore, this course will cover a great deal of information. It will be impossible to go over all of the information during class and recitation, so keeping up with readings will be important. It will be to your benefit to have the readings finished before you come to class, so you will have the necessary background for what is being discussed that day. Lecture and recitation will be used primarily to illustrate and explain the important concepts and themes of psychology, which will be done through lectures, demonstrations, and examples. Because you are responsible for information covered in lectures, recitation sections, and in the textbook, and because this information will not always overlap, it is important to keep up with the readings and to attend class and recitation sections regularly. Course Goals: 1. Students will understand the focus of each of the primary areas within the field of psychology (e.g., developmental psychology, clinical psychology), and the similarities and differences among them.

    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.
