Georgia Institute of Technology is offering an online course called "Introduction to Psychology as a Science". The 12 weeks course commences on 13th January 2014. You can earn certificate at the end of the course.
About the Course:
Since we were young children, we have tried to understand, to predict, and to control behavior. We first dealt with our parents and teachers, and later our friends and companions. This course shows, however, how the understanding, prediction, and control of behavior require scientific validation. By using tools that are systematic and objective, psychology has learned how people behave and think.
Psychology is a very broad field of study and the course will include discussions of the brain and nervous system, sensation and perception, learning, memory, intelligence and thinking, lifespan development, emotion and motivation, personality, social behavior, behavioral disorders, and psychological treatment of disorders. The course will include short lecture modules, demonstrations and experiments, and writing assignments.
Anderson D. Smith will be the course instructor and the course will have a workload of 8-10 hours of work / week. It will be taught in English and the subtitles will be available in English.
