Welcome to Advanced Placement Psychology!!

AP Psychology is designed to introduce students to the scientific study of the behavior and mental processes of human beings. To accomplish this, the course provides instruction in each of the following 14 content areas: History and Approaches, Research Methods, Biological Bases of Behavior, Sensation and Perception, States of Consciousness, Learning, Cognition, Motivation and Emotion, Developmental Psychology, Personality, Testing and Individual Differences, Abnormal Psychology, Treatment of Psychological Disorders, and Social Psychology.
In an effort to make budding psychologists out of you, the course will stress the need to think like a psychologist. As author and social psychologist, David Myers, notes, to think like a psychologist one must “restrain intuition with critical thinking, judgmentalism with compassion, and illusion with understanding.” (Sternberg, 1997).  Whether you choose to pursue a career in psychology or in some entirely different field, this habit of mind will be of great value.
