All students begin their education in psychology at Queen's by taking PSYC 100 Principles of Psychology. This introduction survey of basic areas of psychology include perception, cognition, learning and motivation and their biological substrata. Also reviewed are child development, individual differences, social psychology and behaviour disorders. This survey course is required for students who wish to pursue undergraduate degrees in psychology.
