Other Information about the Course
Welcome to Psychology! Given that this may be the only academic exposure to psychology for some people, I strive it make it as relevant as possible to the students. It is a field that applies to the many experiences one will have in life. This subject does not (nor does it try to) explain the meaning of life or unlock the secrets of the universe. Nevertheless, it is my goal and my hope that you will be able to take something with you from this course for the rest of your lives. This course uses discussion, assessments, and assignments aimed at not only learning about psychology, but for you also to experience it as well.
