Credit will be given for two senior-level classes:
CFS 460/497: Contemporary Lives of Children in England and the US: An Ecological and Multicultural Approach
In this course, you will learn about how the lives of children and families in England and the US are similar and how they differ. You will meet with educational directors at the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum of Childhood, Kew Gardens, and the London Zoo. You will see
these and other London attractions through the eyes of children, families, and educators. Together, you will observe and explore the role of culture, socioeconomic status, religion, race and ethnicity on the daily lives of children and families.
PSYC 420/UNHO 491: History of Psychology
This course explores how Philosophy and Physiology merged to create the academic discipline of Psychology. Education and Psychology are closely related fields, but beyond the content, this is a course that will help you develop your ability to read and interpret difficult texts, make connections between various authors and thinkers, examine original sources of historical information, and improve your ability to write clear and meaningful responses to questions. Honors by contract available for this course.
You’ll get credit for two senior-level classes; one will be in the Department of Child and Family Studies (CFS 460/497: Contemporary Lives of Children in England and US: An Ecological and Multicultural Approach), and the other in Psychology (PSYC 420: History of Psychology). Students will receive 6 total credits during this program.
