Unformatted text preview: PSY 120: INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY INTRODUCTION TO PSYCHOLOGY Instructor: Carol M. Donnelly, Ph.D., LCP Licensed Clinical Psychologist Email: [email protected] Fall, 2009 Tuesday and Thursday – 4:30 – 5:45 p.m. Building: Electrical Engineering Bldg 129 Division: Office: Psychological Sciences Building, Room 3140 Office phone: 49-40436 Teaching Assistants: Dana Podracky [email protected] Psychology is a science that seeks to answer all sorts of questions about us all: how we think, feel and act. Goal: The goal of this course will be to survey and introduce the basic areas of psychology. My motive in teaching this course is to "whet your appetite" for future in-depth study of more specific areas in Psychology. This will be accomplished through my lectures and through your class participation. As the days of this course elapse, you will find the class much more intriguing if you keep up with the chapter(s) in the text that are pertinent to the class lecture. Further, because you will be tested on both lecture and text material, keeping up with the readings will enhance your chances of obtaining high grades on the exams. Requirements: The primary requirement for this course is a set of three (50 question, 2 points per question) multiple-choice exams, given on September 22, November 3, and in December during Finals Week. An unexcused absence from an exam is N.G. It will result in a grade of "F" being recorded for that particular exam. Grades will be posted on the WebCT. Attendance: All syllabus topics will be covered both in class and in the assigned readings. Because of this, I expect you to attend all class meetings. If you are absent, I hold you responsible for obtaining missed notes, assignments, or announcements. Required text: Nairne, James S. (2006). Psychology , The Adaptive Mind (4 th Edition)....
