Fixed-Pace Course





In this course, we explore the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Through readings, videos, case studies, discussions, and weekly practical demonstrations, students will engage with key concepts and debates within the far-reaching psychological disciplines. Topics include the history and methods of psychology, consciousness, learning and cognition, motivation, developmental psychology, personality, social psychology, and psychological disorders and their treatments.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
