Study Guide strongly recommended
Mostly lecture, supplemented with video presentations. Small group projects and discussions may also be utilized.
The class schedule, which indicates reading assignments, is included in this syllabus. In order to derive the most benefit from lectures/discussions, students should complete reading assignments prior to class.
1. Attendance. Each student is expected to attend class regularly. If it is necessary for you to miss class for an extended time, notify me to discuss your situation.
2. Examinations. Four exams will be given throughout the semester with tentative dates and chapters covered in the syllabus. Exams will contain material from both the book and the class lectures. GENERALLY, NO MAKEUP EXAMINATIONS WILL BE GIVEN.
3. Research requirement. Because psychological knowledge is accumulated through empirical studies, students are also required by the department to participate in ongoing psychology department research or to complete an alternative assignment.
Each student's final grade will be based on a 400-point system which includes four exams worth 100 points.
