Course Description

General Psychology is a 3-unit, intensive, immersion-learning course that requires four weekends to complete. Classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm.

This course introduces the scientific study of human behavior through the analysis of facts, theories, and concepts that characterize diverse areas of the field of human psychology. Broad categories of human behavior through various psychological models and perspectives are explored. Abnormal behavior and therapeutic behavior change are also examined.

ISP does not require prospective students of General Psychology to complete a preliminary “Introductory” class prior to enrollment.

This course is offered for either 3 credits or 4 credits. Please contact the school(s) to which you are planning to transfer your credits to confirm how many will be required for your program. You must notify ISP of the number of credits you will be earning before your class begins so we can plan your coursework accordingly. Note that this course includes 1 unit of laboratory work.
