The study of history helps students to see how people in other times and places have grappled with the fundamental questions of truth, justice and personal responsibility. To understand that ideas have real consequences, and to realize that events are shaped both by ideas and the actions of individuals.
Psychology is the study of human and animal behavior. We will look at why people think, feel and behave as they do. By reflecting on your behaviors and the behaviors of your peers, you will gain a better understanding of yourself and others. What does it mean to be a person? Why are we here? How you answer these questions will give you insight into your motivations, emotions, thoughts and behaviors, and how you see yourself and your connection with others. We will study the following in more depth: ??
- Structures and functions of the brain: right brain/left brain
- Learning, memory and motivation (intrinsic and extrinsic)
- States of consciousness: dreaming, sleeping, hypnosis
- Personality traits, attitudes, beliefs
- Symptoms, causes and treatments of mental disorders.
Living in a global community. What did it mean to be a part of the global world in the past? What does it mean in the present? And, what might it mean in the future? In order to address these questions, students will study global connections in the areas of commerce, politics, technology, communications, transportation, migration and resettlement. Students will have the opportunity to explore world civilizations and the exchanges, the conflicts, and the revolutions that arose between them.
