More Information

Section Description

This course is to provide an introduction to the theory and research of health psychology. We will be learning about the contribution of psychological research to the understanding, prevention and treatment of a variety of health concerns. The topics covered emphasize the biopsychosocial model and will provide students with an understanding of the role of social, psychological and behavioral factors in health and illness.

Section Expectation

The major requirements of the course will assess both your mastery of the course material (lectures, readings, and in class activities) and your ability to integrate the material by making connections between different topics that we have discussed.

Evaluation

The format of the course will include lectures, small group discussions, in class learning activities and assignments. Please check Black board for the assigned readings. Questions, comments, and active class participation are encouraged. I expect students to come to class with the readings for the assigned day completed, to listen attentively and respectfully, and to contribute to in-class activities and discussions.
