Course Description

What makes people different and how important are those differences. Individual differences are examined in all areas: personality, motivation, intelligence, values, and interests. In addition, group differences, such as those found in people of different ages, sexes, social classes, and ethnicities are explored.

Grading Policy

There will three examinations; each will be all essay questions. Half the questions come from the readings and half from the lectures. Grades will be determined by how well you do compared to the best performing students. At the end of the course, take the average of the two best scoring students; if you have at least 90% of that average you get an A, 80% earns a B, 70% a C, 60% a D.

Texts

The Psychology of Individual and Group Differences by Lee Willerman. This will be available in Xeroxed form at the Coop. There will also be several articles on reserve in the library and on Blackboard.
