Introduction to Psychology

by The Saylor Foundation

This course material is only available in the iTunes U app on iPhone or iPad.

Course Description

Purpose of Course
This course will introduce you to the fundamental principles of psychology and to the major subjects of psychological inquiry.  It has been designed to not only provide you with the tools necessary for the study of psychology, but also present you with a sampling of the major areas of psychology research.  The course begins with a short overview of how psychology developed as an academic discipline and an introduction to a number of the principle methodologies most commonly deployed in its study.  The subsequent units are arranged around broad areas of research, including emotion, development, memory, and psychopathology.  We will focus on well-substantiated research and current trends within each of these categories.

Customer Reviews

Very helpful

I've taken a few psychology courses at two very good colleges and this is actually the best one I've come across. Very good information and easy to understand. Trust me, you want to subscribe to this. Especially if you're currently enrolled in an introductory course to psychology. It's almost exactly what you will learn in your college or high school course and its almost exactly in the same order. Plus you can always do a search through it to find a particular subject if you find it's in a different order than your classes syllabus.

Disorganized, go elsewhere

Very disorganized. Trying MIT Open Courseware instead.
