PSYC 4014 - Health Psychology♦


(5 cr.)
Health and wellness involve more than physical symptoms and diseases. Health psychology is a dynamic  course that gives students the opportunity to explore the field of health psychology, with a focus on how physical, psychological, sociocultural, economic, and spiritual factors impact health and wellness. Throughout the course, students examine the importance of health disparities and health literacy, explore strategies for promoting health enhancing behaviors, and apply health psychology research to various health issues. Students also apply their learning to the development of their own health goals. The course culminates in a case study that synthesizes students’ learning from the previous weeks.
