AP Psychology

One Term           Grades 11, 12           Elective

The purpose of Advanced Placement Psychology is to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings. Students are exposed to the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major sub fields within psychology. They also learn about the methods psychologists use in their science and practice. In addition to the material covered in Psychology, AP Psychology students will also study abnormal psychology, therapy, biology and behavior, and states of consciousness. Students will have the opportunity to take a nationally standardized test to receive college psychology credits. One field trip is taken. It is highly recommended to take AP Psychology the same year as Intro to Psychology.
