Psychology is a field of study that has applications to just about every field imaginable. Indeed, knowledge and application of psychological principles also contributes to improved mental health, friendships, family relations, and social structures. This survey course is designed to introduce students to a range of psychological topics. Hopefully, students will learn something of use to themselves, and some students may find these topics worthy of future study.
Advanced Psychology uses the David Myers AP textbook. The pace, number of topics, quantity of reading, and writing will be at a significantly higher level in the Advanced Psychology class. Eligibility for Advanced Psychology will be based on previous grades, PSAT and SAT grades and previous teacher recommendation. Students have the option of taking the AP test.
