Psychology

This course introduces 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 within psychology. With the National Teaching Psychology Standards at its core, participants will explore the scientific study of psychology through the seven identified domains.  Content core concepts, and AP psychology test structure will be discussed, with particular emphasis on the essay portion.
