PSYC 305 - History and Systems

The History and Systems of Psychology course will introduce students to key figures and their ideas which have contributed to the growth and progress within the field.

This course attempts to describe this progression both within the scientific community as well as within the social climate (zeitgeist). 

By the end of this course, students will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the origins of modern systems and schools of thought in Psychology. 

Students will develop their critical thinking skills in order to distinguish which theories and ideas promoted scientific and therapeutic growth from those rooted in racism and sexism.
