PSY 5207 - Evolutionary Psychology (3) [DL]

When Offered: Fall, Spring
This course examines how human thinking, motivation, behavior, and social relationships can be understood from the perspective that many aspects of human behavior involve sets of processes designed by natural selection to solve adaptive problems faced by our evolutionary ancestors. Key topics may include: problems of survival, long-term mating, sexuality, parenting, kinship, cooperation, aggression and warfare, conflict between the sexes, status, prestige, social dominance, and how evolutionary theory can provide a unified approach to understanding the different branches of psychology.
