|Abstract: ||Psychology 150 introduces students to a variety of theories and concepts which have been found to help explain human behavior. Students should focus on acquiring a knowledge base from which to better understand his or her experiences. To help organize a large number of psychological concepts we will organize our semester’s learning around five major theoretical approaches: biological, learning theory, cognitive, socio-cultural, and psychodynamic.
Many people are surprised to learn that the discipline of psychology is firmly routed in the scientific method. For this reason research methodology will be stressed within the course. It is essential that students come to appreciate the benefits and constraints that come from grounding psychology within science.|
