Psychology is the study of behavior and mental processes. This short description encompasses an enormous range of different fields including learning, development, group behavior, brain processes and functions, and psychological disorders.

Psychology 101, which is the prerequisite for most of our other psychology courses, will touch on each of these topics in brief. Advanced Psychology courses will focus on these topics in greater depth.
