LSO260 - Principles of Psychology


ENG106 or equivalent.

As we move through the world and interact with those around us, we all play the role of "psychologist", trying to understand why we and others do what we do, feel what we feel, and think what we think. This course is designed to introduce you to the scientific study of human behaviour and mental processes. By understanding how psychological research is conducted, by examining the evidence that has been accumulated in the field, and by using critical thinking and analysis, it is hoped that the assumptions and intuition you have gained through your own experience with the world will be re-examined and re-evaluated in a new and interesting light. A variety of areas within this broad and fascinating field will be examined. These may include learning, memory, social psychology, developmental psychology, stress and health, personality, and abnormal psychology.
