Are you interested in why people think, feel, and behave the way they do? If so, you’re interested in the science of psychology. In our Introduction to Psychology courses, a focus is placed on recent research and the application of psychological principles to everyday situations.
Do you want to “test-drive” Introduction to Psychology I or II before committing to a credit section? Are you hoping to learn more about Psychology without the pressures of exams and tuition fees? If either of these applies, then keep reading.

Open Access is geared for those who want to experience a self-paced, online version of Introduction to Psychology without bothering with a university credit. While you will not be able to participate in exams or assignments, you will have access to all of the learning materials such as the video modules and self-evaluation quizzes. Learning takes place anytime, anywhere and all you need is an Internet connection and a curiosity about why people think, feel, and behave the way they do. The course runs 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. See Psychology’s Open Access page for more.

But there’s more! If you take the course in this way and decide that you would like an opportunity to earn course credit for your participation, you can! This can be accomplished by transferring from Open Access to Flex Term PSYC 1001 or PSYC 1002. See Psychology’s Flex Term page for more!
