AP Psychology

Psychology is a science that seeks to answer all sorts of questions about people: how we think, feel, and act. The purpose of this course is to introduce the systematic and scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Included is a consideration of the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields in psychology. You will also learn about the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and practice. This is a fast paced and detailed course that will be followed by the Advanced Placement Exam in early May.
