PSYC 3700 - History and Schools of Psychology

5 credit hours
A critical examination of the history of modern psychology that will include the development of psychology as a recognized discipline, its emerging schools (e.g. structuralism, functionalism, psychoanalysis, behaviorism, cognitive, humanistic, existential-phenomenological), and its central dilemmas (e.g. scientific status, role of race and gender, mind-body dualism). This course will focus not only on "the great ideas," but also on who develops these ideas and in what socio-cultural contexts. As part of this, we will examine the relationships between psychology and other disciplines, as well as between psychology and society. Requisites and registration restrictions may be bypassed by the department with permission of instructor. Not recommended in the same quarter with PSYC 2050, 3030, or 3050.

Registration Restriction(s): Junior standing and majors only
