The goals of this course are to provide an overview of the vast field of psychology and to illustrate
the scientific methods used to study behaviour.
Organization of the course
Each student is assigned to a specific section: A, B, C, D, E, or F. Due to the large number of students
registered in this course (over 3500), we have to control the registration in the different sections. When
you register, you are automatically assigned to one section. If, for a serious reason, you wish to change
section, you should meet, before the deadline, with an academic advisor of your faculty.
A professor and a teaching assistant are assigned to each section. Each Intro professor follows a similar
procedure. Thus, all Intro sections are substantially the same in content and approach.
The textbook is entitled "Psychology" (10th Edition), by David G. Myers. It is available at the
University Bookstore. We strongly suggest that you buy your own copy; it is a recent document on modern
psychology and it covers the course program efficiently and pleasurably. Online student resources are
available at the following website: http://bcs.worthpublishers.com/myers10e/
The passing mark for this course is 50%. The final exam, identical for all English sections, is worth
45% of your final grade. This exam, containing 100 multiple-choice questions, will be based on the
textbook only. The date of the final exam is set by the central administration of the University, and it is
usually scheduled at the end of the exam period. THEREFORE, WE STRONGLY SUGGEST THAT
YOU CONSULT THE EXAM SCHEDULE BEFORE PLANNING ANY TRIPS OR HOLIDAYS.
Of the remaining 55%, four marks will be attributed to participation in research projects (see
below), and the allocation of the remaining 51% will be determined by each professor.
Absence from exams
For midterms, arrangements should be made with your professor. Absence must be justified by a
medical certificate, which should be presented to the professor in charge of your section
within 5 working days following the exam.
GOING ON HOLIDAYS IS NOT A VALID REASON. MISREADING THE EXAM SCHEDULE IS
NOT A VALID REASON.
Arrangements regarding the final exam must be made with the course coordinator or his assistants.
Absence from the final exam must be justified by a medical certificate together with a copy of
