Syllabus Title: 
Psychology
Syllabus Description: 

Psychology is the scientific study of the inner workings of humankind's most complex organ: the brain. Designed as a tour through the realm of psychology, we'll explore the underlying mental functions and behaviors that govern how we sense, feel, learn, remember, and process language. You'll also learn how the mind develops as it ages, and the effects of nature versus nurture. Finally, you'll learn about psychological disorders, therapy and social psychology. By the end of this course you'll have a greater appreciation and understanding of how your own mind works. This is a single semester course.
