Spring 2010 not offered
This course will examine current issues on the self from both personality and social psychological perspectives. We will discuss how particular conceptions of the self affect cognition and motivation. Examples of topics to be covered are development of the self, culture and the self, self-evaluation maintenance, self-presentation, self-discrepancy, and self-verification.
Students will learn how to review and discuss the merits of research findings on the "self" and their motivational and behavioral implications. Students will have an opportunity to practice their speaking skills by giving oral presentations and leading class discussions.
