General Psychology (PSY101) - Course Description

General Psychology requires four thought-provoking weekends to complete. The accelerated General Psychology classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 1:30pm. (3 Semester Units)

This course introduces the scientific study of human behavior through the analysis of facts, theories, and concepts that characterize diverse areas of the field of human psychology. Broad categories of human behavior through various psychological models and perspectives will be explored. Abnormal behavior and therapeutic behavior change will also be examined.

ISP does not require prospective students of General Psychology to complete any preliminary 'introductory' classes prior to enrollment in our weekend accredited college science program.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer the course requires 4 instead of 3 semester units, we offer 1 semester unit independent study course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom learning. The independent study results in a formal capstone project, conducted by the students with the advising of the instructor.
