AP Psychology
Instructor: Social St.   
Welcome to AP Psychology! This full-year course will provide you with the opportunity to do advanced work toward the possible attainment of college credit in psychology.  The course is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing heavily on concepts in biological science and the humanities.  As a class, we will explore the development of psychology as a science, the various theoretical approaches that underlie explanations of behavior, and the many different fields within psychology. You will also learn about, and practice, the ethics and methods psychologists use in the “real world.” Throughout the course, the recurring themes of
nature vs. nurture and the ethics of psychology are emphasized. 
 
The study of psychology has many benefits. Among the most important are the development of critical thinking skills and an improved familiarity with research methodology. Even more significant is the fact that we will learn more about ourselves, our friends and families, and our world. By learning about aspects of human behavior and thinking, we will become more discerning about how our own actions affect others, how the actions of others affect us, and how groups and cultures interact. How cool is that?
