PSY 125 - Psychology of Success


What does it mean to be successful? What do we personally contribute to our success? Is success the same in our personal lives, at work, and at school? Can the factors that bring us success in one aspect of our lives be utilized in another area? This course is designed to help students create greater success in college and in life. Students will learn to apply relevant psychological concepts and theories such as motivation, learning, memory, positive psychology and college student development to gain more control over outcomes and experiences in college and in life. In addition, students will be introduced to and given multiple opportunities to develop competency in MCC’s Core Student Success Skills (CSSS): critical thinking, communication, collaboration, organization, and self-assessment to help sharpen skills that contribute to college success. Using guided journal writings, class activities, and focused conversations, students will explore success strategies to achieve their personal goals. Through application of the success strategies, students will learn to improve their life outcomes - academically, professionally and personally.
