Course Description




Psychology is the study of the mind and its impact on behavior. It studies both conscious thought and unconscious processes, and aims to understand how the two interact and how they inform our actions, beliefs, and relations with other people. As such, psychologists study perception, emotion, learning, brain functioning, and much more, as well as the biological and evolutionary roles they play.
