Psychology is the prerequisite class to Sociology. Students should take this class their junior year and Sociology their senior year. We study Psychological terms, theories and individuals important to the basic understanding of the field of Psychology. This first semester covers topics such as critical thinking, link between human biology and behavior, our senses and our perceptions, states of consciousness, differing ways we learn, and memory.
