Are you fascinated by what causes people to behave in certain ways? Few things are more interesting than the study of people and what makes us act the way we do. Psychology 12 is a general survey course to introduce you to historical and current topics in psychology. You will examine and evaluate ideas, philosophies and values unearthed by the study of the human psyche. At many points along the way, you’ll reflect on and experience contemporary approaches so you can better understand some of your own questions about basic human nature. You will personally experience activities that will help you “decode” why you and others respond the way you do to various stimuli in our environment—for example, how things like genetics, culture, social groups, personality and personal beliefs can predict how you will interact with and understand your world.
