First Day of Class

•    Psychology as most fascinating subject in college
•    Probably broader than many of you know or may suspect
•    May be among the more difficult classes you take? Not because of me, but
    • The subject matter is enormous
    • Psychology is not just common sense: science
    • Biological, cultural, and other approaches
    • If you had psychology in high school, often not taught as a college-level class
