Course Description

A survey of the diverse roots of modern psychology, the competing schools which influenced psychology's development, and the perspectives which guide scholarship and service in present-day psychology.

Grading Policy

The course grade will be based on three, 40-point examinations, each covering about one-third of the course material, a cumulative final exam worth 120 points, and writing assignments worth 240 points for a possible course total of 480 points. The final exam will be divided into three, 40-point sections, each representing one-third of the course material. For a student excused from an hour exam, the student's score on the corresponding section of the final will be assigned as a make-up grade. Also, for all students with hour exam scores, those scores will be compared with the corresponding sections of the final, and the higher of the two scores will be recorded both as the hour exam score and the final exam section score. A student may choose not to take the final exam and to have the scores for each of the hour exams count as the section scores for the final exam.
