PSYC 1000: Introductory Psychology

Self-paced Online

This course will provide you with an overview of how psychologists attempt to discover how we think, feel, and behave. I will introduce you to psychology as a science and to its subdisciplines, and I’ll expose you to psychology’s various theoretical orientations, methodologies, and applications to society. In addition, I will challenge your preconceptions about psychology by helping you think critically about its issues. Throughout the course I will help you enhance your understanding of yourself and others by relating to the material and applying it to your own life.
