Psychological Science

This laboratory course in psychology is intended for non-majors and the course material is dedicated to generating an understanding of the scientific method and the ways that it can be used to ask questions about the natural world, which includes the behavior of humans and other animals. The course introduces students to the empirical methods used to study behavior and mental processes (e.g. sensation, perception, learning, memory). These psychological phenomena are used in the laboratory as a means to explore specific scientific concepts.
