While considering the psychologists and studies that have shaped the field, you will explore and apply psychological theories, key concepts, and phenomena associated with such topics as the biological bases of behavior, sensation and perception, learning and cognition, motivation, developmental psychology, testing and individual differences, treatments of psychological disorders, and social psychology. Throughout the course, you will employ psychological research methods, including ethical considerations, as you use the scientific method, evaluate claims and evidence, and effectively communicate ideas.
