PSYC 8241 - Human Motivation♦


(5 cr.) What are the factors that drive human behavior and in what ways can professionals harness this information to help individuals achieve their goals? Through the exploration of historical and contemporary theories and perspectives, students in this course have the opportunity to answer such questions and gain foundational knowledge of the study of human motivation. Students examine the physiological, psychological, learned, social, cognitive, and emotional aspects of motivation. They work toward developing a conceptual understanding of theories associated with motivation, which they apply to personal, professional, and contemporary social issues. Students engage in readings and assignments that incorporate themes of diversity as they relate to human motivation.
♦ Students may take this as a non-degree course, which means they do not have to be enrolled in a program. Contact an Enrollment Advisor [1-866-492-5336 (U.S.);1-443-627-7222 (toll)] for more information.
