Welcome to Introduction to Psychology
This course will introduce you to the science of psychology. We constantly explore the world around and within us, but this exploration can lead to erroneous conclusions. Psychology has developed scientific methods to explore questions about humanity and this course will introduce you to those methods and many basic findings. We will discuss a broad range of topics, including the relationship of the brain to the mind, stability and change across the lifespan, social behavior, and motivation and emotion. The goal is to provide you with a framework to think critically about psychological topics and understand current debates and discoveries.
