PSY 344 - Psychology Origins: History and Systems

3 credits
Prerequisite(s): PSY 161 - Introduction to Psychology  
This course is a review of the evolution of the history and major systems of psychology including behaviorism, physiological psychology, psychoanalysis and the humanistic and cognitive movements. Particular attention will be given to the philosophical origins of the discipline. The course develops in students not only an understanding of how psychology emerged as an independent discipline, but also how other scientific and cultural events helped shaped what psychology is today.  This will allow the students to better understand the diverse people, ideas, and schools of thought that have shaped psychology through the ages and how psychology applies to the world in which we live.
