Course Objectives This introductory course will cover the broad areas of psychology including memory, learning, personality, physiological aspects of behavior, development over the life span, psychological disorders, treatment of disorders and the social aspects of life. Psychology is much more than abnormal behavior, we will learn how humans think, make decisions, learn, develop, and adapt to their environment. You will be expected to know the definitions of major terms and concepts used in psychology. You will also need to know how the information gathered within psychology is used to describe, explain, predict and control human behavior and mental processes.
