PSYC 310 Psychology Of Personality

PSY 310 Psychology of Personality Three Credits Theories of personality form perspectives through which students explore their own nature as a human being. Each major theory is examined in terms of its philosophical assumptions, major concepts, research regarding its validity, and resulting therapies. Recent neuropsychological evidence regarding the formation of the core self, the function of the autobiographical self, and the capacity for moral choice are included in the curriculum. Students experience theories and therapies through the roles of client and therapist through live-vignette work in the classroom. Prerequisite: PSY 101. (Offered fall semester.)
