2017-2018 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

CPSYC 4910 Online Psychology Capstone

Building on theoretical foundations from required courses in the online psychology major, this course provides students with an opportunity to critically examine and evaluate a burgeoning field of psychological research:  happiness and well-being. By examining and interpreting the latest psychological research from several sub-disciplines of psychology, we will gain a thorough understanding of the interconnections among several contemporary theories of psychological research and evaluate how they contribute to our understanding of well- being. Emphasis will be placed on the ways that scientists generate hypotheses regarding the nature of psychological processes and the methods by which these ideas are tested. Through the analysis of this specific area of psychological research, students will demonstrate comprehension, evaluation, and application of the science of behavior and mental processes. NOTE: Students must achieve a minimum grade of “C” to complete the requirements of the psychology major.
