This course is designed to provide an overview of the scientific field of psychology and to relate that knowledge to life. By exploring the contributions of psychology to the human experience, we can develop better relationships with ourselves, others, and the world around us. Our exploration will include topics such as learning and motivation, states of consciousness, lifespan development, and abnormal psychology. During this course, we will explore these issues and many others to make sense of, integrate, and utilize firsthand knowledge of psychology.


This section of Psychology 1001 was designed for the CUNY College Now program.
