Welcome to the study of Psychology!

Congratulations on your decision to study Psychology. In Section I we have a lot of people who are keen to help you get started and enjoy lots of success in your work; these include your Course Director, three graduate student Teaching Assistants, and nearly thirty undergraduates who completed the course previously. Our first course meeting will be on Wednesday, September 10, in Curtis Lecture Halls I. At that time I will introduce myself and all the members of the course team, and I will explain more about the work that we will be doing and the structure of our meetings.

On the website you will find both the Course Outline and the Reading Schedule for the year. Each week I will post an outline of the Wednesday lecture and a list of discussion questions to help you prepare for the tutorials. Also here you can also expect to see announcements about activities in the course, answers to frequently asked questions, and comments about topics or ideas I forget to mention during my lectures. I hope the website will prove to be a valuable resource for you and that the course will prove to be an excellent experience.

While you are here today, please have a look around. In addition to the course-specific material I have mentioned, you will find links to a number of different resources, blogs, and podcasts relevant to Psychology in general. 

I look forward to meeting everyone in the course soon,
