IDS 1610  Interdisciplinary Studies: Literature and Psychology credits: 6

This course is designed as an interdisciplinary study of literature and general psychology. The course will emphasize the evaluation and synthesis of psychological concepts (i.e., scientific methodology, major theoretical schools of thought, various approaches to interpersonal functioning, and human development). It will also examine a variety of creative, historical and scientific literature that highlights and exemplifies psychology's association with culture and language. While the course integrates substantial writing assignments, the primary aim of these assignments is a focused application of psychological concepts in regards to literature as a matter for illustration and example. (Note: Students who complete Interdisciplinary Studies: Literature and Psychology will receive credit toward the completion of the general education program for the following courses: ENC 1102 and PSY 2012. Each student will be required to write a minimum of 8,000 words. This course partially satisfies the writing requirements outlined in the General Education Requirements.)
