Breaking News: New Courses for Fall 2009

Psychology will offer two new upper-level elective courses this Fall: Psychology of Emotion and Psychology and Culture. Dr. Martin will be teaching Psychology of Emotion, which will study the many ways in which biological, cultural, cognitive and other factors can contribute to our emotions. Psychology and Culture (taught by Dr. Vespia) will explore core areas in psychology, such as cognition, emotion, and social behavior from a cross-cultural (e.g., international) perspective. Both classes will count as upper-level electives for the major and minor, but SIS may not recognize that since they are so new (and did not exist for the “catalog year” in which you declared your major). Psychology and Culture will also count as a World Culture General Education course, but again, SIS may not recognize that at this point. Consult the instructor or your advisor if you have questions.
