Undergraduate Courses in Psychology 830

13:830:300 Introduction to Clinical and School Psychology (3) This course is intended for undergraduates who are considering careers in applied areas of psychology, specifically focusing on clinical and school psychology. It will provide an overview of professional roles in both specialty areas as well as current topics in educational settings and clinical practice.  We hope it will help you learn more about the field and answer questions you may have as you plan for your future. We will begin with on overview of the professional practice of clinical and of school psychology, including the history of each field, theoretical foundations, roles and functions. We will explore assessment and intervention, the research base, ethics, work with diverse populations, and admission to graduate school. Each overarching topic will be examined from the perspective of both clinical and school psychology. Students will be exposed to different models of professional practice and career paths in schools and clinical mental health settings.
13:830:399 Psychology of Intimate Relationships (3) This course does not count toward the major or minor in psychology. The course will explore the psychology of close (romantic) human relationships. Examples of topics covered are the biological bases of our need for relationship and of attraction, how relationships form and how they come apart, the value of both awareness of the self and empathy for the other in maintaining high-quality relationships, and the impact of wider social and cultural factors. This course aims to engage you both academically and personally. We will explore what the research tells us about relationships, but will be actively applying what we are learning in experiential ways. There is no factor more central to life satisfaction than the nature and quality of our closest relationships, and we can apply the knowledge base available to us to do a better job. You are likely to find that the literature contains much that may influence the way you look at relationships and at yourself.
