PSYC 171: History of Psychology
Professors: Patti Simone & Lisa Whitfield








Course Description: This is an Advanced Topics course. (Capstone) Students will read and discuss both a textbook on the history of psychology and original papers written by the psychologists we read about. Students will write their senior papers in this course on any approved (by instructor) topic in psychology, tracing the history of how it has been conceptualized, researched and written about over a period of at least 50 (in many cases 150 or 200) years. This course begins with philosophical and scientific ideas from the 18th and 19th centuries and then moves into the formal history of our discipline.
