Travel into the human psyche

Psychology is the science of human emotion, thought and behavior, including neural, physiological and cognitive processes; developmental factors and individual differences; and interpersonal, international, and cross-cultural components. The Psychology major is designed to expose students to a spectrum of basic issues currently being addressed in the discipline, the principles of research design and statistics, and theory and research in specific areas of psychology. A bachelor's degree in Psychology provides preparation for graduate study for a career in psychology, and a major or minor may be paired with further training in law, education, business, social work or other health-related professions. Students with this major or minor have also pursued careers in business, healthcare, social services, communications, social media, education, human resources and other fields since psychology coursework provides the knowledge of human behavior, analytical thinking, communication and teamwork skills, as well as the sensitivity and comfort with diversity sought by employers. The psychology major at Franklin University may be completed on campus or in conjunction with a Franklin partner institution. For students interested in an intensive laboratory experience, a semester abroad during the spring semester of the third year of study is strongly recommended. Selection of coursework and research experiences at the partner institution is completed in conjunction with the Franklin psychology advisor and approved by the Dean of Academic Affairs. The current partner institution is Southern Methodist University (S.M.U.) in Dallas, Texas. Students may also choose to fulfill the requirement at another institution in close... [-]

Get an interdisciplinary look at culture in multiple contexts

“Pull a thread here and you’ll find it’s attached to the rest of the world.” Nadeem Aslam, The Wasted Vigil

The Comparative Literary and Cultural Studies (C.L.C.S.) major at Franklin focuses on cultural phenomena and processes as they unfold under the pressure of historical, social and economic forces. Inherent in our approach is an understanding of culture as an ever-evolving entity that demands continuous acts of interpretation, negotiation, and creativity. Our teaching is both theoretical and topic-based: for instance, we explore how collective memory is shaped in the wake of slavery or apartheid; we seek to understand the consequences of forced or voluntary mobility; we examine the cultural significance of cuisine; we investigate the multiple ways in which law shapes cultural processes; we explore the nexus of culture and nature; and we study forms of popular music as an expression of culture. The comparative work we do explores each topic from a number of disciplinary angles and situates it in its historical context. In this context we ask how the topic is reflected in, and influenced by, literary texts, film, and visual culture; we investigate how new media contribute to our understanding of cultural processes and trace how broader systems of knowledge and power, such as law or policy, come to bear on them. In comparing these various modes of knowledge production, we use theory to help us appreciate cultural nuances and to understand the multiple challenges that confront us in... [-]
