PSY3880-01 Travel/Study: Italy from Cradle to Colosseum: An Exploration of Human Emotion
4 semester hours
Human emotion is the focus of a trip to Rome, the capital city of Italy, rich in history and art regarding feelings of love and hate. Using multiple theoretical perspectives, we will examine the psychology of aggression by studying the violence of the Roman Empire and explore theories of attraction while exploring the exquisite art and architecture of the Italian Renaissance. Also, by visiting the largest city in a country known for its adoration of the mother figure, we will study the emotional bond between parent and child known as attachment. Our travels will also take us to other major cities, including Florence.
