A Message from your Instructor

I am delighted to be your instructor in the course. I am a full time member of the Psychology Department at De Anza College, and a distance learning instructor at De Anza College, for many years. I am glad you have decided to take this course in the Distance Learning format and I look forward to meeting all of you personally.

If you are interested in Psychology as a major, and or long-term career, feel free to attend one of my on-campus lectures as an observer. You may meet with me in my office to discuss your career options.

You can talk to me in person during my office hours or leave me a voice mail message anytime. I will get back to you as soon as I can. I hope you find this class to be interesting and informative and that it helps to meet your educational goals.

General Psychology covers the elements of the physiological and social/behavioral perspectives on human thought and behavior. Discussions on sensation and perception, motivation, learning and memory, personality theory, psychotherapy, as well as abnormal behavior.
