AP Psychology

  • What is AP Psychology?

AP Psychology is a course that exposes students to systematic, scientific, and research on human behavior and cognitive processes. AP psychology mainly involves four major sections : developmental psychology, psychodynamics, psychoanalysis, and animal psychology. Students can study and apply psychological theories and knowledge in related fields, such as studying human behavior, perception and brain cognition from a biological perspective; social psychology and individual differences. Through the AP Psychology course, students will also learn how to apply psychology research methods (including the understanding of moral values) and scientific verification methods to the evaluation and effective communication of various viewpoints.
