Course Description

Through the study of classical personality theories and cutting-edge research, students learn how biological, psychological, and sociocultural forces create individual differences in the human personality. Along the way, via personality inventories and self-reflection exercises, students gain an in-depth understanding of their own personalities and awareness of the potential consequences their personalities have for various well-being, interpersonal, and mental health outcomes. Students also learn about stability and change in personality across situations and the lifespan; strategies for adjustment, resilience, and self-improvement; and contentious research into sex, gender, and personality.
