Course created by Professor John F. Kihlstrom at UC Berkeley
Introduction to the principal areas, problems, and concepts of psychology. This course will survey the scientific study of mental life and the mental functions that underlie human experience, thought, and action. The emphasis is on cognitive processes and social interactions characteristic of adults. However, research on nonhuman animals, as well as biological, developmental, and pathological processes, will be introduced as relevant.
This course is a prerequisite for admission to most upper-division courses in the Department of Psychology at UC Berkeley.
