PSY 552 - EVOLUTIONARY PSYCHOLOGY


College of Arts & Sciences

Credit(s): 4

The course deals with sociobiology, the evolutionary basis of behavior. It examines a range of behavior from responses that are genetically predisposed to the highly flexible conceptual behavior shown by humans, including the origins of belief systems. A required laboratory component consists of applications of techniques used to study flexible animal behavior. Students will learn to train an animal to perform several tasks including a stimulus discrimination. This course is a Graduation Composition and Communication Requirement (GCCR) course in certain programs, and hence is not likely to be eligible for automatic transfer credit to UK.

Prereq: Declared major in Psychology, PSY 195 PSY 215 PSY 216 PSY 311 , or consent of instructor.
