PSY3021 Theories of Personality

Personality theories seek to explain human nature. In this psychology course students will study and critique a wide variety of theories that attempt to explain how and why we, as humans, think, feel, and behave in the ways that we do. While psychologists in most other fields of the discipline look outside the person for such explanations, personality psychologists emphasize looking inside the person to understand how and why we are similar to and different from one another. This course will be taught using lecture and classroom discussion, as well as a variety of learning exercises in the classroom. Case studies and narratives will be examined in applying theory to real life situations. A 2000 level Social Science course, with a grade of C or higher, is a prerequisite. Students must have also completed 2 additional 2000 level courses in different disciplines, with grades of C or higher, as prerequisites for this course. Credits: 3.000
