Overview of 200-level Psychology
Psychology 200 consists of five papers containing lectures covering a variety of central topics in psychology and practical work related to the same topics. The lecture courses cover elements of abnormal psychology, applied psychology, biopsychology, cognition, perception, philosophy, research methods, and social psychology.
The 5 papers are each worth 18 points and may be taken together in the same year or separately. PSYC 210, PSYC 211, and PSYC 212 are prerequisites for Psychology 300 papers. PSYC 203 and PSYC 204 are each optional papers. Each paper consists of lectures and associated practicals or tutorials.
