Curriculum Overview 

Psychologists study mind and behavior in both human and non-human animals. They test hypotheses and theories using systematic observations of behavior in experimental, field, computer modeling and self-report settings.

We believe that the best way to communicate this empirical approach is by participating in it, so students learn and apply psychological methods in our courses. Our curriculum addresses current psychological theories that apply to a wide range of phenomena, but it also shapes students to employ various approaches to the empirical analysis of such theories. During this process, students develop analytical, research, quantitative and communication skills. Our empirical orientation also leads students to participate in collaborative and independent research experiences under the mentorship of our faculty.

Questions about behavior can be addressed at multiple levels of complexity (e.g., neural, cognitive and contextual) and from multiple perspectives (e.g., learning, perceptual, developmental and social). Our curriculum embodies these multiple conceptual approaches, as reflected in diverse course offerings as well as our participation in the Biological Foundations of Behavior and Scientific and Philosophical Studies of Mind interdisciplinary programs.

While Psychology students have the flexibility to create countless paths through the major, most students complete their major coursework in a common sequence that provides the scaffolding for deeper engagement with and application of psychological science. Majors are first introduced to a broad array of psychological phenomena, theories, and methodological techniques in Introductory Psychology (PSY 100). Then, students are prepared to explore different areas of psychology and related fields by taking five courses at the 200- or 300-level. At the same time, students develop their research skills by completing Research Design and Statistics (PSY 300) and further refine their research toolkit by taking a 300-level lab course in an area of interest. Finally, majors complete a pair of culminating experiences in their senior year. They collaborate on an empirical research project with their classmates in a 400-level Collaborative Research course and they demonstrate independence, integration, and depth of understanding in a 400-level Psychology seminar, senior independent research project (PSY 490), or a 400-level Psychology community-based learning (CBL) course.

Exploring Psychology - Content Courses

No prerequisites
 

220. Neuroethics. (NSP)
This course will examine our changing social, ethical, and political perceptions of human behavior in relation to changes in our understanding of the brain and its function, particularly in terms of advances in science that have occurred over the past 50 years. We will discuss the implications of our ability to monitor and manipulate the brain for our understanding of what is moral, normal, and healthy. Topics covered will include disorders of consciousness, cognitive liberty, psychiatric diseases and their treatment, drugs and addiction, and the role of the brain in producing socially unacceptable or undesirable behaviors.

204. Emotion.
This course will serve as an introduction to theoretical and empirical approaches to the study of human emotion. Some questions this course will address include: What are emotions? What are the functions of emotions? How do our emotions affect our thoughts and behaviors? How do we regulate our emotions? We will also consider how the answers to these basic questions can be used to understand psychopathology, well-being, and happiness in both children and adults. Prerequisite: PSY 100 or SPM 100.

Issues explored in this context include self-affirmation processes, regulation of social action and the relationship between affect, cognition and action. Research activities and analyses integrated into coursework. Prerequisite: PSY 100 or SPM 100. Corequisite: PSY 300/230 or BIO 210. 
Knowles

310. Conditioning and Learning.

Examines basic mechanisms for learning (including habituation, sensitization and classical and operant conditioning) and explores the scientific and practical application of these mechanisms to explain and predict behavior. Discusses the extent to which learning mechanisms are consistent across species and how the physiology, natural environment and social systems of individual species interact with basic learning processes to produce different behavioral outcomes. Prerequisite: PSY 100 or SPM 100. Corequisite: PSY 300/230 or BIO 210. Same as BFB 310.

We will examine this question on three different timescales: millennia (human evolution), centuries (cultural dynamics), and years (child development). Students will evaluate and synthesize insights from psychology, philosophy, biology, anthropology, economics, and history in order to understand the manifold origins of moral beliefs and behaviors, thus challenging existing values and cultivating improved abilities to create a better future.

400-Level Courses

450. Cognitive Development. (IA)
In a matter of months, a zygote goes from a collection of cells to a thinking, feeling, learning baby…who quickly goes on to be a walking, talking, problem-solving toddler…who soon after is a reading, writing, socially- aware child. It’s breathtaking! This advanced, discussion-focused seminar explores the foundations of cognitive processes and developmental mechanisms that underpin our fantastic human cognitive growth. As we survey major topics in cognitive development, our focus will be primarily on birth through early childhood, asking the question: How do infants and children make sense of the myriad people, ideas, and objects around them? Prerequisite: PSY 202/304 or PSY 305 or PSY 311. 
Staff

Same as STS 452.
Cuffari

453. Nature/Nurture. (NSP, IA)
One of the most enduring disputes in the field of psychology concerns the degree to which psychological traits are learned or innate. Are genes or socialization responsible for heightened rates of aggression in men? How do biological and environmental factors interact to produce language? Is culture an evolved adaptation? Does it make any sense at all to partition the causes of thinking and behavior into “nature” and “nurture” – or is this a wholly false dichotomy? Throughout this course, we will draw upon cutting-edge research to evaluate a range of theoretical perspectives on the interplay of nature and nurture. We will also discuss the myriad sociopolitical ramifications of this fundamental debate. Prerequisites: PSY 300/230 and senior status; or permission.
