Self and Identity

Prerequisite: One PSYC course at the 200-level. This seminar covers both classic and contemporary research on the nature of selfhood. Topics will include defining and making sense of the self (including sources, accuracy, and development of self-knowledge at the individual, relational, and collective levels); evaluating and protecting the self (including self-esteem, self-presentation, and contending with identity threats); and the active regulation of the self (self-control).
