PSY 615 - Theories of Personality (3 Credits)

Prerequisite(s): None
This course aims to provide students with an in-depth introduction to the field of personality psychology. Students will learn about the various theories related to conceptualizing personality (traits, context-specific, narrative) as well as the influences that shape personality. The course also will address assessments and research methods used within this field and students will be engaged in applying the theories to real-life contexts. Knowledge of personality psychology can aid one in thinking usefully and critically about human behavior patterns, relevant not only in psychology and human services professions, but in other areas of life.
