Ever wonder how the mind works? Psychology is “the scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behavior in a given context.” Sound interesting? You might have a budding interest in Psychology. Lucky for you, NYU Precollege is offering Intro to Psychology (PSYCH-UA 1) this summer.
PSYCH-UA 1 will cover the fundamental principles of psychology, with emphasis on basic research and applications in psychology’s major theoretical areas of study: thought, memory, learning, perception, personality, social processes, development, and the physiological bases of psychology. Students in this class will be able to partake in direct observation of methods of investigation through lab demonstrations and by participation in current research projects.
Psychology can go hand in hand with many other subjects; after all, there is a human component to every field. A course in Sociology, Anthropology, Economics, Politics, or from many other subjects can be a good compliment to this course.
