PSY 1001 - Introductory Psychology

Credits: 3

Description: Why do we behave the way we do, make the choices we make, and feel the way we feel? How do experiences like trauma, learning to ride a bike, and falling in love affect our brains? How do culture, gender, and age influence our interactions with each other and the world? Students are introduced to the science of human behavior and mental life, including biological foundations (neuroscience, sensation, consciousness), cognitive factors (thinking, memory, perception), developmental processes (learning, psychological changes across the lifespan), social and cultural influences (gender, personality, social psychology), and mental and physical health (psychological disorders, therapies, and ways to improve overall well-being).
