PSYC 1002 - Psychology as a Natural Science♦


(5 cr.) Psychology as it is known today has its roots in philosophy and in the natural sciences, such as biology and chemistry. In this course, part of a two-course sequence, students explore major theories and topics related to the natural science aspect of the science of psychology. The focus of this course is on how biological and physiological processes influence behavior. Topics include methods of analysis, brain-behavior relationships, sensation, perception, memory, cognition, learning, motivation, and emotion. Note: This course is delivered over a 6-week term but is equated to PSYC 1002E, which is delivered over a 12-week term.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
