This course engages students in critical examination of theory and research in the study of human personality, individual differences, motivation and well-being. Theoretical approaches explored include psychoanalytic, dispositional, biopsychological, cognitive, phenomenological, humanistic, behavioral, and social learning perspectives. Students engage in comparison and contrast of these different perspectives and their underlying assumptions. This course also provides the opportunity for students to integrate their study across broad areas of psychology and to apply the study of personality to other fields such as creative writing, literature, philosophy, education, outdoor leadership, business, and social work.
