Psychology involves the study of human behavior and the influences that affect mental processes. Students will be confronted with the history of the development of psychology as a science. This course will also introduce students to prominent psychologists and their theories, as well as exploring different areas of psychology as a profession. Because students will be studying human behavior, the study of structure and function of both the brain and the nervous system will also be covered. Finally, a variety of topics, including mental illness and abnormal behaviors, will also be acknowledged.
