Introduction to Psychology (PSY100)
This course offers students insight into the fascinating study of the mind. We will begin by introducing you to yourself. We'll explore questions like: How do you see yourself? How do you sense the world around you? What are you likely to remember and in what way? What role do emotions and moods play in your daily life? Are you rational in your decisions? Were you born this way? We'll also consider how we interact in our relationships, how we might do better and why some people draw us closer while others repel us. Further topics we will touch upon include: the roots of prejudice and racism, morality, psychopathology, psychological problems (depression, schizophrenia and anxiety), evolutionary psychology, as well as dreams and some thoughts on hypnosis. Students will be encouraged to suggest other topics of interest as well. Our ultimate aim is to better understand ourselves and our behaviors as well as those of others.
As an introductory course, no previous study in psychology is required. Just bring your mind and be willing to share your thoughts and to sometimes question your own beliefs.
