Course Description

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. The AP Psychology

course is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of the

behavior and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Students are exposed to the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. They also learn about the ethics and methods psychologists use in their science and practice. The AP Psychology curriculum framework specifies what students must know, be able to do, and understand, with a focus on ideas that encompass core principles, theories, and processes of the discipline. It also encourages instruction that prepares students for advanced coursework in the field of psychology at the undergraduate level. There are nine units in AP Psychology, and the amount of time spent on each unit is based on the weighting on the multiple choice section of the AP Exam. 

The AP Psychology skills describe what a student should be able to do while exploring course concepts. These skills form the basis of tasks on the AP Exam. These skills are concept understanding, data analysis, and scientific investigation.
