PY103 MU Introductory Psychology Essay


Written Assignment:

In a 5-7 page, typewritten paper, discuss how taking an introductory psychology course is

beneficial to you personally.  You may discuss how it pertains to a personal or family 

issue OR how it is beneficial to you with respect to EITHER your intended major OR 

career.  More specifically, discuss how three different psychological concepts or theories 

apply to you personally, or to your intended major or career.  First describe what the 

concept/theory is and then how it relates to you.  If you are a psychology major, feel free 

to discuss how these concepts would relate to a possible career interest of yours.  You 

should have a minimal of two peer-reviewed journal articles or sources.  You may use 

your textbook, but it does not count towards the two sources.  Your paper will be 

evaluated with respect to your ability to demonstrate an understanding of the concepts or 

theories as well as your ability to apply it to your intended major or career or personal issue.
