The purpose of this course is to present an overview of the field of psychology. The topics we will cover include research methods, the biological bases of behavior, perception, learning, memory, emotion, motivation, social influences on behavior, health and well-being, and psychological disorders and treatment. A combination of lectures, readings, media sources, and participation in demonstrations of classic psychology experiments will convey a sense of the foundational questions and methods of the science of psychology. Ultimately, the goal of this course is to impart an initial understanding of some fundamentals of human nature and behavior, as well as instill knowledge of the science of psychology.
