Psychological Science
PSYC 101
Fall 2010 not offered

This first-year seminar provides a broad survey of the entire field of psychology. It differs from the large Foundations of Contemporary Psychology (PSYC105) in several ways. First, this course is for first-year students. Second, the course is offered as a seminar with each student required to make several oral research presentations to the class. Thus, active participation is required. Third, in addition to an introductory text, students read original journal articles in each of the major areas of the discipline. As indicated by its name, this course will provide an in-depth overview of psychology as an empirical scientific discipline.
