PSYCHOLOGY & HUMAN BEHAVIOR

Why do we humans do the things we do? Why do we like certain foods, forms of art, products, and people? Why do men and women behave differently, or have different outcomes? To answer these questions, we turn to the field of psychology. But within that broad field, the answers aren’t always the same. Social psychologists, for instance,argue that our preferences and behaviors are best explained by our culture and upbringing. A new field called evolutionary psychology challenges that point of view,arguing that behaviors are innate, and products of the choices of our ancestors. These are compelling arguments, but rife with controversy. In this course, you will explore the latest scientific research in the field of psychology, enhance your understanding of human behavior, and develop essential skills for success in higher education as you do.
