This course will survey a history of modern psychology. “Modern” psychology covers the time span from 1879 (the founding of Wundt’s lab) to the present. The course will look at the history of psychology with regard to both its academic development and its professional development. That is, it will present the historical development of clinical, counseling, school, and other applied fields as professions in the non-academic world as well as the academic/scientific fields. Finally, the course will include a particular emphasis on the history of psychology at the University of Michigan.

Each student will prepare a short class presentation of a classical paper in the history of psychology. The major assignment for the students in the course will be to complete an individual historical research project. This should provide students with some experience and knowledge of the methods of historical research and supply them with a greater appreciation of the work of historians.
