Psych 101

Original: From the little he remembered from Psych 101, she was an example of classic post-traumatic syndrome.

This character is an IT guy, he didn't study psychology at the University, so what can Psych 101 mean?

Thank you very much for your suggestions. :)

    There are metaphorical uses of Such-and-such-a-college-course 101--and you have been referred to a thread which discusses that--but unless the text from which you are quoting specifically denies that this person in IT took psychology in college I would take the words quite literally. He remembered something from his college class Psych 101.

    It's common in the US for university students of science and technology to be required to take some courses in the liberal arts, and Psych 101 could be a part of fulfilling such a requirement wherever psychology is considered as part of the liberal arts (as it is, for example, at the University of Minnesota).
