Course Description: This is an introductory course designed to acquaint the student with the major topics, concepts and theories within Psychology.  The history of Psychology as a discipline is introduced, along with its predominant research principles and paradigms.  The biological bases of behaviour are presented, with particular attention to the role of the brain and the central nervous system.  Social influences on behaviour are also discussed.  The student is encouraged to develop a critical, analytical approach that compares "common knowledge" about behaviour with theoretical explanations and research evidence.  Note that some topics which are usually part of a survey course in Psychology, such as human development, are not emphasized because these topics are covered in depth in other courses in the program.

Course Description: This interdisciplinary course explores North-American popular culture and its effects on the world.  The student's perspective is that of a cultural researcher, an observer seeing the Northern way of life for the first time.  Through a political study (gender, race, and class analyses) of film, television, computer technologies, music, and advertising, students learn connections between these media and their political, historical, social, and economic contexts. Also studied will be the idea of popular iconography, which is the idea that numerous icons and symbols have their own unique and powerful political, social, or ethical connotations and influences. Computer access is essential to the completion of this course, since all readings are provided on-line {access is available in the St. James Learning Resource Center).  With Internet access, students will contact the course's exciting web site, and print out readings, assignments, and other resources. As a major 'icon essay' constitutes a large portion of the course evaluation, good writing skills are essential.
