Outcome 1: To acquire a greater awareness of, and curiosity about, your own behavior and the behavior of other living things.

Outcome 2: To gain mastery at asking and answering questions about the mechanisms and evolution of behavior by performing observations, generating hypotheses, deriving predictions, and developing tests to investigate the causes of behavior.

Outcome 3: To appreciate the similarities and differences between the behaviors of humans and non-human animals, and to understand how the study of behavior is relevant to your other courses, to your own life, and to the world around you.
