Research in psychology seeks to understand and explain thought, emotion, and behavior. Applications of psychology include mental health treatment, performance enhancement, self-help, ergonomics, and many other areas affecting health and daily life.This is a one semester course that will be an overview or introduction to Psychology. We will use a variety of resources to study and explore the basic components of Psychology, Psychological theory and Psychological disorders. These resources will include primary and secondary resources, discussion, problem-based learning exercises, videos and writing.Sociology Description:
Sociology is the systematic and objective study of human society and social interaction. The discipline of sociology enables us to look beyond our limited view of the world to society as a whole – the values and ideas shared by its members, the groups and institutions that compose it, and the forces that change it. The course will require outside reading, preparedness for discussions, online participation and independent projects. Your class participation grade will depend on class discussions, completion of class-work, and projects.
