Altruism& Aggression:Psych of

PSY 230
Description: Students explore and evaluate varied theoretical explanations for helping and aggression. We consider the ways that emotional, cognitive, biological, social, and cultural factors may influence helping and aggression, and take a close look at the impact of electronic media on these behaviors. Students practice critical evaluation of research evidence and theory, articulate their relevant personal values, and apply their learning creatively by developing a sound practical proposal for decreasing human violence and increasing helpful actions.
