Where do superstitions come from? How does your body know what time it is? Why are we so attached to our things? Why do people get so anxious about math? This course will explore answers to questions such as these and many others as students gain a basic understanding of the field of psychology. Psychology is the study of behavior and the human mind. It seeks to understand all aspects of conscious and unconscious experience and thought, examining human beings both as individuals and as members of social groups. Students will learn about the subfields of psychology and study topics such as memory, motivation, emotion, personality, and psychological disorders. We will engage in activities to infer traits, determine the effects of multitasking, “sell” a point of view, talk with experts, and much more!
