Abnormal PsychologyIn the same way that psychology offers important insights in terms of human behavior and experience, so does the sub-field called abnormal psychology. Our Abnormal Psychology course will introduce psychopathology and changing views of mental illness. We examine impairments in brain functions and social processes and how this affects everyday life. Our course explores disorders of childhood, mood disorders, psychoses, schizophrenia, sexuality, eating, and anxiety disorders. By taking this course, you will discover the many faces of abnormal psychology and you will be challenged to define what is normal and abnormal. 
Prerequisite(s): None
