PSYC 2313 Fall 2011 C:\Documents and Settings\nathaniel\OSU\Instructing\PSYC2313_PsycHumanProblems\11FA\CourseFiles\Syllabus 1 of 7 PSYC 2313 – PSYCHOLOGY & HUMAN PROBLEMS “Psychology keeps trying to vindicate human nature. History keeps undermining the effort.” –Mason Cooley, American Aphorist (1927-2002) Notice: Oklahoma State University, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Department of Psychology, and the Course Instructor(s) reserve the right to modify this syllabus (course requirements, grading policy, etc.) as the curriculum and/or scheduling require(s). Any changes will be announced in-class and posted on the course webpage. Instructors: Instructor: Nathaniel John Cooney Office: 011 North Murray Hall Email: [email protected] Office Hrs: W 08:00-10:00 (015 N. Murray) Phone: 405-338-8268 (cell/text) & by appointment Course Description: This course examines personality dynamics and their application to personal, cultural, and vocational experience (from course catalog). The course provides a broad survey of topics related to human behavior in a modern social context; and will necessarily involve a critical examination of diverse theories and conceptual approaches to understanding contemporary problems at both the individual and collective levels. Prerequisite: Psych 1113, Introductory Psychology. Course Format & Meeting Information: This class will meet twice weekly on Tuesday/Thursday from 3:30 PM – 4:45 PM in Room 112 of the Classroom Building (next to the Student Union). The class format will blend lecture/seminar (incorporating material presented by the instructor with discussion initiated by the students). Attendance Policy Education at the college level is intended to take place in the context of a greater learning community that promotes the free and open exchange of ideas, while respecting and appreciating the diversity among those ideas. As members of this learning community, students can only benefit from this exchange by being present to participate in, contribute to, and draw from it. Therefore, student participation is expected and required at all scheduled class activities . Participation is not mere attendance, but is active involvement in the course. Additionally, material may be presented in lecture that is not found in the course texts, and this material may be included on graded assignments (i.e. quizzes and exams). As an incentive to reward attendance and participation, students whose final grade is within 10 points (1%) of the next higher grade, and who have no more than two unexcused absences, have completed all course assignments, and participated in-class to the best of their ability, will receive the higher grade.
