 Welcome to Psychology!

In this class we will learn how to use Psychology, the study of the human mind and behavior, as a tool to better understand the world in which we live. As we study, we will focus on how different patterns of thought, learning, and the neurological functions of our body contribute to the way people act in the world around us, and how we can act and think in ways which will contribute to the world around us.
