Welcome to AP Psychology! This course is designed to introduce you to the fascinating world of psychology. You will study the psychological facts, principles and phenomena associated with each of the major sub-fields within psychology. You will also learn about the methods psychologists use to monitor and evaluate psychological processes. Topics of study will include those specified by the College Board. They will include, but are not limited to: research methodology, statistics, personality development and theories, therapy, developmental psychology, biological bases of behavior, learning, cognitive processes, motivation, emotion, sensation, perception, social psychology, and states of consciousness. This course seeks to prepare you to take the College Board Advanced Placement Examination in Psychology, offered every year in May. I strongly encourage you to take the AP Exam but it is not a requirement of this course.
