“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.” William James

Most of society’s challenging problems—including crime, poverty, prejudice, violence, and environmental sustainability— are related to human attitudes, values, and behavior. Psychology informs our understanding of these problems and their solutions. Defined as the scientific study of the mind and behavior, Cadets in this course will gain an understanding of the complexities and diversity of human thought and behavior – skills that can be applied to their own lives, and those around them.

The Course is broken up into 5 Units, or “domains” –
Unit 1 – Scientific Inquiry
Unit 2 – Biology in Psychology
Unit 3 – Development and Learning
Unit 4 – Personality and Motivation
Unit 5 – Abnormal Psychology
