Psychology in Modern Life is designed to translate psychology into applications to everyday life. Examples of life situations addressed include topics such as stress management, health behaviors, behavior in groups, interpersonal relationships and psychological health. The course has an empirical focus, which means that we will apply data collected via the scientific method to matters of living, and develop critical thinking skills in order to evaluate claims about healthy living made by sources from within and outside the psychological community.
