Join more than 7,000 students learning about interesting research in psychology!

If you’ve ever wanted an easy way to start learning about psychology, this is the course for you!

In this free course, you’ll learn about 5 studies in psychology and see how their results reveal interesting things about human thought and behavior.

The studies in this course reveal…

  • how we can persuade someone to do what we want without even providing good reasons
  • why praising some kids for their intelligence vs. their hard word dramatically changed their test scores
  • why people who held a hot cup of coffee instead of an iced coffee automatically started thinking a stranger was especially generous and caring
  • …and more!

Carefully designed experiments tell us a great deal about the choices we make, the ways we behave, and why we think the way we do. I’m a social psychologist myself, and I thought about which studies most interested me early in my education and which studies are my current favorites. I even reached out to my colleagues to ask them what studies have most inspired them and are important for everyone to know about.

So enroll in this fun introductory course and start seeing how simple research in psychology tells us amazing things about human thought and behavior!
