Course Description Why are people the way that they are? Why do they do the things that they do? What can psychological science tell me about the world around me? And how can I use it to make the world a better place? If these questions (especially the last two) keep you up at night, this is the perfect section of Intro Psych for you. Over the course of the semester, you’ll grapple with these questions and learn how to think like budding scientists—a skill that will benefit you through college and beyond, regardless of your major or ultimate career path. As an introduction to the scientific study of the human mind, we will cover everything from the organization of our brain cells to the psychology of internet trolling, as well as the scientific methods that help researchers make psychological discoveries. (See the course calendar on the last page for a full listing of topics.) Throughout the semester, you will be highly encouraged to apply your knowledge of the material to your own lives, as well as the world around you. How to Best Succeed in This Course: • Actively read the textbook (take notes on readings, make outlines, quiz yourself, and re-read sections before an exam). • Take notes in class and ask questions on material you are unsure about. • Engage in homework assignments. These are opportunities to absorb the material from class and the textbook.
