The goal of this course is to increase the understanding of psychology, its methods, theory, and research with the objective of having each who opts to do so, pass the Advanced Placement Examination. The course will explore the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each major sub-field within psychology. The course is divided into fourteen (14) units, which represent major content areas of psychology.
The course is taught at an accelerated level and student study habits should reflect this fact. The objective of this course is to introduce students to the methods, research, and theory of psychology. It is hoped that knowledge of psychological inquiry will provide students with a way of perceiving aspects of and an appreciation of the complexity of human behavior.
This is a one-semester senior social studies elective that is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Students will be exposed to psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major sub-fields within psychology.
