Topics you'll explore
Students will learn to tackle these fundamental questions with the tools of psychological science. Students will learn about classic experiments in psychology, with the goal of getting a hands-on, experiential understanding of how people work and how psychologists study them. They will explore social dynamics; emotions; personality; mental illness; the nature of beliefs; neuroscience; and the relationship between the mind, brain, and body. As a capstone project, they will construct their own miniature psychology theory, design/run an experiment to test it, and present findings to the class.
Students in the program at UC Berkeley visited the Cognitive Psychophysiology Lab at San Francisco State University and performed EEG testing to measure electrical activity in the brain. They also had the opportunity to meet with guest speaker, Mark Geisler, PhD in Cognitive Psychophysiology.
