This is a psychology course at the 300 level, so it is designed for Juniors who have already taken a couple psychology courses. The focus is on a very positive aspect of human life: Altruism. This is the study of why people are kind to each other, individually, as a group, and globally. We analyze this wonderful part of human behavior by means of theories, research, examples of global non-profit agencies, Biblical and Swedenborgian concepts, and by analyzing current issues involving altruism. Students need to purchase 3 books, and engage in Service Work every week for 11 weeks.
