PSYC 1107 Introduction to Psychology II
Hours:Three hours of lecture per week and two hours of laboratory work every second week for one term.
Description:This course builds on Introduction to Psychology I and continues the survey of various perspectives and fields of psychology. Further attention is focussed on topics such as research knowledge on developmental, social, personality, and motivational psychology, as well as an introduction to how this knowledge can inform applied areas of psychology such as educational psychology, intelligence testing, and psychological disorders and their treatment. The laboratory portion of the course offers small-group instruction and is intended to give the students, through ""hands-on"" experience, a concrete understanding of the role of the scientific method in psychology. Each lab unit focuses on one fundamental area of research design or elementary statistical analysis.
