Motives, behavior and development

Understand the connection with general psychology courses.

Psychology classes for professional growth 

Understanding the behaviors of people around you can be beneficial in both in your professional and personal life. By studying psychology you can gain perspective into the motivations that underlie behavior. You can also become a more effective communicator and gain insight into the actions of others.

Our psychology classes focus on general rather than clinical psychology and are designed to help you explore the cognitive and affective processes that impact behavior. You can learn about emotional intelligence, social psychology and the psychology of learning.

Taking psychology courses can help you deepen your understanding in important subjects like cognitive psychology and the physiological mechanism behind behavior.

We offer a broad range of psychology course covering subjects such as:  

  • The scientific process as applied to personality psychology.
  • Research methodology as it applies to the field of psychology.
  • Developmentally appropriate strategies for helping children understand death.
  • Parenting styles and their influence on development during infancy and childhood.

You can also take advanced online psychology courses that look at complex topics like psychological disorders and conditions of psychopathology. Take a single course to expand your understanding in key areas or use the credit toward one of our degree programs.

We help busy professionals get the education they need for continued growth and development. We also offer the support you deserve, including online tools and career resources to help you reach your full potential.
