Email: Telephone messages: (703) 323 2155 This class is an introductory and comprehensive overview of classical and current psychological theories and their modern applications. You will learn, among other things, how people think, remember, forget, forgive, make great decisions and bad mistakes, judge and misjudge others, fall in love, lose and win. In addition, you will have a great opportunity to learn more about yourself. This innovative, cross-cultural, and critical analysis deals with the intersection of psychology with the studies in medicine, biology, sociology, and anthropology. REQUIREMENTS The final grade will be based on four written exams (three tests and a final). Each of the exams ί February 7, (test 1), February 28 (test 2), April 11 (test 3), and May 2 (test 4, the final) ί will consist of forty multiple-choice questions. You have to bring a scantron for each test. You may choose to do a written homework assignment ( the term paper ) in place of Test 4 (the final). The assignment for the term paper is below in this file, which you can find under the “syllabus” link on the Blackboard. The optional paper is due: April 25 th or earlier. If you write a paper, you don’t have to take the final exam. This course’s original lecture notes, links to videos, and additional reading materials are posted on the Blackboard. You have to study the posted materials and read the book for your lectures and exams. Required Text: Psychological Science (Gazzaniga/Heatherton/Halpern) . 3/e. Publisher: W.W.Norton The four exams: 100 points ( 25 points maximum for each exam ). You must take the exams on the scheduled dates. Up to five points are deducted for a make-up exam (taken if you missed a scheduled test for a legitimate reason). These exams will be administered on February 28 and April 11, if necessary. Important: Make-up exams are short-answer tests and you may not take more than one make-up exam. The term paper: 25 points (max). Again, if you submit the paper, you don’t have to take the final exam. Test Evaluation: you receive 5 points for taking the test on schedule. You receive one point for two correct answers (or one point is deducted for two incorrect answers). Grading: 23-25 points=A; 20-22 points=B; 17-19=C; 12-16=D . Extra Credit: You may earn up to 5 points if you choose to work on an extra-credit assignment, which is a written psychological research project. The topic will be posted. Talk to the professor for more information. The deadline for extra credit work: May 2. No extension of the deadline will be granted.
