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.
