Scientific inquiry into human behavior and cognition is a dynamic and rapidly growing field that influences personal development and diverse careers. This course examines essential aspects of the human experience (neurology, sensation and perception, personality, learning, memory, cognition, emotion) and political, economic, and cultural influences. Contemporary trends and specific sub-disciplines (neuropsychology, childhood development, gerontology, organizational behavior, wellness, etc.) will be addressed. Those seeking underpinnings for work in mental health and social work, education, medicine, public policy, and law, will find this course indispensable. Students will demonstrate skill at applying theory to practice in “psychological notebooks”, integrative response papers and group activities.
