Welcome to Class!

We have a great term ahead of us :)


Welcome to Principles of Psychology! Throughout the term, we'll cover some great material. We will explore theory, research, development and behavior. Many students find that the material is intuitive and that we apply it to the "real world".

We have some useful, engaging, and fun topics to work through this term. Take a look through the course outcomes below and try to keep these in mind as we progress through our lessons:


Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:

1. Gain insight into one’s own personality and interpersonal relationships by thinking critically about psychological theories and principles.

2. Recognize root causes, motivations and influences resulting in different human behaviors and identify therapeutic methods used in treatment.

3. Compare similarities and differences in psychological perspectives on human thought and learning.

4. Transfer knowledge, skills and behaviors acquired through formal and informal learning and life experiences to new situations.

5. Follow established methods of inquiry and mathematical reasoning to form conclusions and make decisions.

Getting Acquainted...

Please take a few minutes to get acquainted with the classroom. To your left you'll find all the information you need. Begin by clicking on "Introductory Documents”. Here, you can review the syllabus and course calendar. To access each week’s work, you’ll click on “Weeks”. You'll find the "Icebreaker Discussion" under Week 1. Use this section to get to know one another. I respond to studnets within a 24-36 hour time frame. If you do not hear back from me in this period it indicates your email, call or text did not come through (in which case, resend--I'd love to hear from you). Also, grading is always complete by Thursday night (11:59pm). Be sure to review your feedback each week as it can be of benefit.

As a bit of background, my name is Robyn Milliken-Setser. I’ve been teaching with Bryant & Stratton College for several years now and truly enjoy interacting with students. My graduate degrees are in both Sociology and Business….while they seem like very different fields they intersect on many levels. I live in southwestern Florida with my husband Brad….the weather is great here! In my spare time I enjoy going to the beach, concerts and reading.

If you have questions at any point, feel free to get in touch with me. You are welcome to email, call or text (941-979-2424 9-5 eastern). Good luck in class! -Robyn
