PSYC - 240. Learning


3 credit(s)
This course surveys historical and contemporary theories of human and animal learning. The psychological study of learning is traced as it has developed over the past 100 years. Among the earlier theorists surveyed are Thorndike, Pavlov, Guthrie, Hull, and Tolman. The more recent theories of Skinner and Bandura are given extended treatment. Current perspectives from cognitive science and neurophysiology are also reviewed. A general theme of this course is to demonstrate the relevance of each learning theory to matters of practical human importance. This course provides background that is of special relevance to individuals interested in education, child development, counseling, and clinical psychology.
