Psychology is the study of how and why we behave as we do. In this course, students study factors which affect behavior—such as habits, attitudes, emotions and personality—and how they are developed. It also includes discussions of how we learn and how to get along with others.
In completing this course students do activities such as give an example of a learned behavior, identify good study habits, recognize types of propaganda, describe how to handle anxiety, describe qualities which make for a good leader and discuss ways of getting along on the job.
There are 6 examinations in Psychology for Life Today.
