Why do humans behave the way they do? The goal of this course is to introduce students to the science and application of psychology, including how the brain and environment influence thoughts, emotions, and behavior. Students will learn how to examine human behavior, how to think critically about scientific research, and how to apply key findings in psychology to everyday life. Topics covered include the biological bases of behavior, learning and memory, human development, mental health, and social interactions.
