About This Course

As is the case for all introductory classes, the purpose of this class is to provide a foundation for students to understand and interpret a new field of study. Psychology is the study of human behaviour. Researchers in the field ask questions about why people think, feel, and ultimately behave the way that they do. You will learn about the sub-fields of Psychology including the basic terminology and the concepts that are of interest to psychologists.
