PSYC 488 - History & Systems of Psychology


Major areas of psychology will be traced from their origins in early Greek philosophy; survival through the dogmas of the Dark and Middle ages; and their post-Renaissance emergence as principles of behavior distinct from philosophy. Emphasis will be on the evolution of scientific psychological thinking from ‘devil theory’ to classical empiricism, and from the Aristotelian method to the Galilean mode of empirical science. This is a project- and writing-intensive course that serves as a capstone course and involves assessment of majors’ mastery of both content and reasoning skills in psychology.

Prerequisite: PSYC 100 , PSYC 202 , PSYC 299 , PSYC 302 , PSYC 305  and all required courses and labs (one required course and one required lab may be taken concurrently).

Credits: 4 cr

General Education: Must apply to Psychology Department for approval for enrollment.
