PSYCH 2750 Introduction to Personality

Course description

What is “personality”? How is it scientifically studied and measured? To what extent, do biological, social, and cultural factors shape personality? Is personality an expression of our genetic make up and biology, the culmination of social influences, the interplay of both, or the result of random events? In this course, we will review the major theoretical paradigms of personality psychology, discuss contemporary research, theory, and methodology, and learn about key historical debates in the study of “personality”.

Prerequisites

Introductory psychology or human development course is recommended.
