Intro to Psychology
Fall 2024
Taught By: Howard Steele
Section: L

CRN: 7380

Credits: 0

This course provides an introduction to the broad science of psychology. Weekly lectures are combined with weekly small group seminar discussions to provide the opportunity for exploring how the scientific method has been applied to the challenge of understanding age-related changes, and individual differences in, human thought, feeling and behavior. Who am I? What is real? How has the mere century-old discipline of academic psychology addressed these fundamental questions about human life? Are these cultural differences to be reckoned with? Further basic questions guiding the lectures include: How to design a psychological research investigation? Are there long-term influences of early experiences upon personality development? How does memory work? How do psychologists decide what is normal? How do psychologists treat anxiety or depression? How should we understand the interplay between nature and nurture reflecting, if not determining, who we are? By the end of the course, students will have answers to these questions, as well as an appreciation for the history and current status of cognitive, developmental, social, and clinical psychology. Note: Lecture will be delivered online at the time listed in this catalog entry and a recording will be made available for asynchronous viewing. Discussion section B will be delivered online. All other discussion sections are scheduled for in-person instruction on campus. Students must register for both the lecture and discussion section of this course. [This ULEC is in category 2, Introductions to Social Research.]
