Advanced Studies in Psychology acquaints students with the systematic and scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings. This introduction to psychology covers topics that include theories and findings on learning, memory, perception, social development, and personality, as well as abnormal psychology. It also allows students to experience material covered in the texts through in-class demonstrations and out-of-class activities. One major goal of Advanced Studies in Psychology is to develop proficiency in basic psychological principles.
