PSY 205 / 3 Credits
The fundamental concepts of psychology should be familiar at some level to anyone because they address much of what makes us human—perception, sensation, emotion, personality, learning, memory, stress, and social behavior.
That’s what makes PSY 205 so fascinating: you can apply emerging psychological theories to real-life experiences and gain insight into why humans behave the way they do!
This course explores how our biology is turned into personality through the functions of perception, consciousness, emotion, and motivation, as well as higher-order functions such as memory, learning, and language.
How humans act when surrounded by others in societies is examined through the lenses of social psychology and psychological disorders.
