PSYC 1002E - Psychology as a Natural Science♦


(5 cr.) Psychology, as it is known today, has roots in philosophy and in the natural sciences, such as biology and chemistry. In this course, the first of a two-course sequence, students explore major theories and topics related to the natural science aspect of the science of psychology. They examine methods of analysis, learning, memory, cognitive principles, and brain functioning as they relate to psychology, sensation, perception, evolution, motivation, and emotions. Students engage in practical discussions and application-based assignments to gain an understanding of how biological and physiological processes influence behavior. Note: This course is delivered over a 12-week term but is equated to PSYC 1002, which is delivered over a 6-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.
