The university is a mecca to which students come with something less than perfect faith ... they are not here to worship what is known, but to question it. Like every university, the campus is criss-crossed with long walks that professors take after lunch, and the research students are ecstatic if they are asked along.
— Jacob Bronowski, Ascent of Man

What am I teaching This year?

Below are the courses that I have tentatively been scheduled to teach for the 2017-2018 Academic Year. 


Psyc 240 - Social Psychology
Psyc 441 - Advanced Social Psychology - Topic: Social Psychology of the Holocaust & World War 2  - This course is scheduled for 2:15 on Mondays and Wednesdays, but this may change to Monday's and Wednesdays at 7pm. Please keep this in mind when registering. If the course does not change permanently to Mondays and Wednesdays at 7, then we may still have some classes held at 7pm on Mondays in order to accommodate the films that are a part of the course. Even though Psyc 441 does not show up as being offered in the Calendar, IT IS on the Timetable and will be offefred.
