Advanced Placement (AP) Psychology is designed to meet the curricular demands of that of a first year university/college psychology course. Students must be willing to accept the challenge of a rigorous academic curriculum that will include some self-directed units and readings. AP Psychology is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals in context. Students are exposed to the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. Many of the topics include controversial subject matter and will require you to be mature, respectful, and think critically as well as possess an openness to others perspectives and theories.
Students will learn about the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and practice (www.apcentral.collegeboard.com). The pace of this course requires students to keep up to date with course readings, assignments and tests. There is an AP exam that requires preparation.
