This class introduces students to the field of Psychobiography, combining the disciplines of psychology and biography to analyze the lives of historically significant individuals through the use of psychological theory and research. We will explore how psychobiography contributes to the field of psychology as a whole. Employing the qualitative and quantitative approaches of psychobiographical methodology, students acquire a deep understanding of psychobiography's value as a research endeavor and how to craft convincing psychobiographical interpretations of their own.
