Utah Valley State College is offering three new behavioral science classes for the fall semester: gerontology, race and minority relations, and research methods for the behavioral sciences.
Gerontology, SOC 265, is a three-credit class that meets Tuesday and Thursday afternoon from 1-2:15 p.m. and deals with the study of aging. Special topics include health, leisure, family, personality and global concerns.The race and minority relations course, SOC 340, offers students the opportunity to learn the history of racial groups in America and the interactions between groups whose levels of political and economic power differ. Class is on Wednesday evening from 6-8:30 p.m. in the Gunther Trades Building.
A class dedicated to research methods, PSY 201, will be offered for the first time at UVSC. Students will be introduced to research methods commonly used in psychological and sociological research, including survey construction, data gathering, population and sampling issues as well as experimental and quasi-experimental designs. The four-credit course meets Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays with a required two-hour lab on Thursdays.
