As a general education course, students will learn: a) about the relationship between historic and contemporary issues and will understand contemporary issues with sensitivity to a rapidly changing, diverse, and complex world; b) how psychology applies to the practice of their discipline and to other disciplines, to society, and to their own lives; c) the causes of human behavior and their consequences; d) to identify, evaluate critically, and seek solutions to problems related to psychology; e) learn about tools of statistics and biological sciences to analyze complex problems related to psychology; and f) how to communicate original thought in written assignments. Required Textbook: Schachter, D., Gilbert, D., & Wegner, D. (2008). Psychology. New York: Worth Publishers. ISBN: 9781429257619 . Hardcover textbooks (new and used) are available in local bookstores. Or you can purchase the ebook for $68.95 by purchasing access to Psychportal directly from the publisher: http://courses.bfwpub.com/schacter1e.php . Select the option Get access to PsychPortal resources without selecting an instructor. The study guide for the textbook is not required for this course; however, if you think you would benefit from it, it is available for purchase in the campus bookstore. In the past, students have attempted to pass the course without purchasing the text. This is not a wise strategy. As is typical in college courses, lectures in this course cannot cover everything in the course. In order to learn all the material, you must read and remember the assigned chapters. Exams will cover all assigned readings as well as concepts covered in lectures. Desire2Learn is a vital component of the course. Copies of course handouts and important course information will be posted weekly. It is YOUR responsibility to read all materials posted for this course....
