The descriptions and topics of this course change from semester-to-semester, as well as from instructor-to-instructor. Prerequisite: varies with the topic offered. CAREERS FOR PSYC MAJORS: Psychology is such a big field – there are so many things you can do with this degree! However, the broad nature of the field can be intimidating for students; with so many things you can do, how can you decide what you want to do? The goal of this course is for you to learn more about the field of Psychology. Determining a career depends in large part on what the values and goals of the particular subfield are that you want to pursue. Therefore, emphasis in this class will be placed on you exploring the values of the field – as well as your own personal values and goals as a Psychologist, and how they match up! TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY In order to fully understand digital culture, we must examine the economic and social impacts of an ‘information society’ alongside the shifting and emerging cultural forms that have digitized our lives and play an increasing role in mainstream consumer and media cultures. This course examines the social processes affecting technological innovation and the ways in which an innovation is either institutionalized or abandoned. Students explore not only the assessment of technological innovations, but also the impact technology has on social issues such as inequality, consumption, identity, community and belonging.
