Whether you weren’t able to begin classes in August or want to add a few more hours this semester, you can still register for C-session classes, which begin Oct.

The psychology course introduces students to concepts in psychology and understanding of yourself and others. Topics covered include personality, conflict and adjustment, tests and measurements, biological bases of behavior, and group phenomena.

 

The history course covers the early days of the United States from colonial America through Civil War and Reconstruction.
