Psychology 11

This course cannot be used toward Adult Graduation Credits

Have you ever wondered…..why people have different personalities; what intelligence is and how it’s measured; why one person is attracted to another; and why people dream and what dreams mean?
Psychology 11 is an introductory course that will address some of the above questions and more. This course will introduce some history of psychological thought, theories of motivation, emotion and personality as well as human development, learning theory, and social psychology. It will allow students to explore some of these topics from from a Western World’s point of view to various cultures, including an Aboriginal’s view. This course works best for students who have an interest in learning about themselves, who have good writing skills, and who have the motivation and self- discipline to work independently. You will be working on self-reflection write-ups for each of the five units in this course.
