PSY6030: Social Bases of Behavior

Credits 3
This course outlines a transpersonal and integrative approach to social psychology. The student will examine the behavioral approach to the social aspects of the person, as well as cultural psychology, the constructivist, consciousness-oriented perspective on the topic. Emphasis will be placed on how an integration of these approaches may bridge the sociocultural view on the human self with explorations of the mind beyond the ego, thus, forging a potential creative alliance between social psychology and transpersonal psychology.
