This course is designed to introduce students to the field of psychology. Psychology seeks to understand why people think, feel, and behave the way they do scientifically. To understand ourselves and others, however, we must consider all aspects of human functioning, such as the biological basis of our behaviour, the way we learn and remember, and how our personality develops, to name a few. Thus, this course will provide an overview of some of the major fields within psychology. In the process, students will be exposed to a discipline that is rich in theoretical diversity, research findings, and practical applications. They will be encouraged to critically evaluate common sense knowledge about how people function and to challenge their preconceptions. Students who have taken PSYC 400 Psychology cannot take this course.
