The University of New Hampshire offers many courses for students to explore. One of the most interesting, however, is the Introductory Psychology course. Even if you are not interested in majoring in Psychology, it is a great course to take so that you can learn new things and apply the concepts to your own life. Here are some reasons why every UNH student should enroll themselves in a psychology course.
1. The information is always relevant.
Unlike a history class or something along those lines, psychology is a subject that will always be relevant in today’s world. Psychology courses cover a lot of concepts that obviously have to do with human mentality and interactions between humans. This will always be important information to know considering that human interaction will always be an everyday action that we all take.
2. You can apply concepts to yourself.
Many people realize while taking psych courses that they can apply what they’re learning to their own lives. As psychology is the study of the human mind, and we are all humans, taking a psychology course can offer students an opportunity to learn more about themselves and why they act the way they do. Psychology courses can be very informative and important to people who do not know much on the subject.
3. You can improve your people skills and social skills.
With understanding how and why people act the way they do, and having a better grasp on human interaction, you may be able to pick up a few strategies that can lead to better social skills for yourself. Understanding the way people act can easily lead to interacting with people more successfully.
Overall, psychology courses are extremely important to take as a student, regardless of your major. The most popular courses here at UNH are Introductory Psychology (PSYC 401), Social Psychology (PSYC 552), and Abnormal Psychology (PSYC 561). Enroll yourself in one of these to expand your knowledge and learn something new!
