This program is designed to provide students with a three dimensional learning experience in the birth of Western European Psychology. Students will lean about the origins of science; be presented with lectures discussing the physiological background in psychology; and learn of major philosophical themes that emerged in psychology.
The program will "geographically" trace the history of psychology, beginning with a tour of the Museum of the History of Psychology in Wurtzburg, and the Wundt room at the University of Leipzig, both in Germany.
The program then travels to England to visit the Freud Museum, the Anna Freud Center, the Frances Galton Collection, Darwin's House, and the Bedlam Hospital. Students will have time to explore London and enjoy this culturally rich and historically fascinating capital.
