PSYC 5205 - History and Systems of Psychology


(5 cr.) In this course, students focus on the historical and philosophical roots of psychology and counseling. Through conceptual and application-based assignments, students learn about structuralism, functionalism, behaviorism, psychoanalysis, gestaltism, and existentialism as well as contemporary perspectives, including evolutionary psychology, positive psychology, postmodernism, and feminist psychology. Students demonstrate and apply their knowledge through an integrative writing assignment in which they address the developmental history of a major area of study within a subdivision of psychology. Students also explore and consider themes of diversity and multiculturalism in psychology and counseling within each of the perspectives. Note: To register for this course, please contact the Academic Advising Team.
