Courses I have offered


Intorductary Psychology - PSYCH 100

 

Ah Intro Psych, the most popular course on almost any college campus. I teach the course using a combination of Dr. Grigg's textbook and material supplied by Dr. Russell Dewey at IntroPsych.com. In Fall 2011 we will also sample material from a new textbook my Dr. Okami, which is being prepared by Oxford University Press.

Elementary Statistics in Psychology - PSYCH 200

 

Good old Psych Stats, probably the most feared course in the psychology curriculum. Drs. Jaccard and Becker have an expensive textbook, but I think it is best. You should take this course as soon as possible; your fourth semester at the latest.

Transpersonal Psychology - PSYCH 497A

 

497 is the code for "Special Topics" courses. I have offered Transpersonal Psychology once, under highly unusual circumstances, and am not likely to do so again. However, students should all know that instructors have the option to offer unique topical courses. If you can get together a group of students interested in a non-standard topic, we can try to make fun things happen.
