Course Description

The AP Psychology course is designed to introduce students to the systematic and scientific study of the behaviours and mental processes of human beings and other animals. Learners are exposed to the psychological facts, principles, and phenomena associated with each of the major subfields within psychology. Learners will analyze ethical issues and enduring psychological questions. Through this rigorous course, learners will develop critical thinking, reading, writing, and discussion skills, along with being able to apply psychological principles in their own lives.

This course is equivalent to a university level introductory psychology course. It is fast-paced and requires a strong time commitment. Upon successful completion of this course, learners will earn two Saskatchewan high school credits (Psychology 20 and Psychology 30). Students must contact post-secondary institutions directly to determine whether or not AP courses are accepted for advanced standing.
