There are spaces available for PY105 Introduction to Psychological Science taught in Block 3. If you do not need a lab credit, but want an introduction to psychology, this is the course for you. This course will count as the PY100 credit for either the Neuroscience or Psychology major, and may be ideal for those taking a pre-Med track-who will not need an additional lab, but want the material from an introductory course. This course is taught in a large format (a limit of 45) and will have some associated laboratory components in the afternoon, but will not have the Rat Lab.
