PSYC 1002 R - Introduction to Psychology II

Web course
The evaluation for this course does not include formal seated exams, so no distance proctoring arrangements are required.

A survey of topics associated with psychology's role as a social science, including social psychology, personality and abnormal psychology. Precludes additional credit for PSYC 1000. Prerequisite(s): PSYC 1001.

Starting where PSYC1001 left off, PSYC1002R will deal with intelligence & psychological testing; motivation & emotion; human development; stress & mental health; social behavior; psychological disorders; and treatment of psychological disorders. By the end of the semester we will have completed a survey of most of the major topics in contemporary psychology. Although the content is identical to face-to -face Intro Psych courses offered by this instructor, the format of PSYC1002R is online with no physical classroom or required meeting times. Unlike a traditional face-to -face course, you determine when to view the video Modules, and test yourself with Quizzes.
