PSYC 1105 – Introduction to Psychology
(3 credits – TG) 3 hours lecture
This course introduces the history, methods, and current state of knowledge in modern psychological research. A wide range of content areas will be surveyed, including biological psychology, learning, memory, perception, personality, psychological disorders, therapy, stress, social psychology, psychological development in children, and the ethics of research. Additional topics may be included at the discretion of the instructor.
Note: Psychology 1105 is intended for non-Psychology majors only and can be used as a prerequisite for most 2000-level Psychology courses. Psychology 1103 and 1104 are required for BA Psychology majors. Students who complete 1105 but who subsequently become Psychology Majors will be required to complete Psychology 1103 in addition to 1105. Only one of Psychology 1105 and 1104 can be used to satisfy graduation requirements for the BA (Psychology) degree.
