PSY-101 : Introduction to Psychology
This course is designed to present an overview of psychology. As an introduction to the field, students learn current perspectives and the methods used in psychology today. They become familiar with problems and general findings in the processes of sensation, perception, learning and memory, and consider issues related to language, thought, and intelligence. They focus, too, on understanding the connections between emotions, stress, and health, and examine current theories in developmental, personality, and abnormal psychology. Students are encouraged to apply psychological principles to personal and social concerns.
