Course Description

PSYC 495: Integrative Psychology

Capstone course integrating prior learning, exploring current research and contemporary
issues in Psychology. Writing intensive. A grade of C or better is required for this course
and all prerequisite courses. This course is required as a culminating experience prior to
graduation.


Prerequisites: Senior standing, Psychology major; PSYC 101, PSYC 324, PSYC 325,
PSYC 381.

Students who have not completed the prerequisites should not enroll in this course. The
instructor may drop a student at any point during the course if prerequisites are found to
not be completed.


ASSESSMENT TESTING: Because this is a capstone course for your major, also
known as a culminating experience course, you will be asked to take a senior test -
the Major Field Test (MFT). It is a nationally-normed standardized test taken by
thousands of students throughout the United States. Columbia College uses your
results and the results of every Columbia College student taking the test to improve
learning experiences and the curriculum in your major.
The content of the Major Field Test reflects the basic knowledge and understanding gained
in the core undergraduate curriculum. The tests are two-hour, multiple-choice
examinations designed to assess mastery of concepts and principles as well as knowledge
expected of students at the conclusion of a major in specific subject areas. They go beyond
measurement of factual knowledge, however, because they also evaluate your ability to
analyze and solve problems, understand relationships, and interpret material.
Approximately half way through this course you will personally receive an email from the
Vice President of the College, asking you to take the MFT. When contacted, I strongly
encourage you to take the test and do your very best; doing so will strengthen your degree.
If you are within reasonable distance of one of our 30 nationwide ESD Campuses, you will
be asked to go to that campus to take the MFT in a proctored setting. If you are too far
from an ESD Campus, or if extremely extenuating circumstances prevent you from taking
the MFT at the local ESD Campus, you may request a waiver by emailing the Vice
President.

In addition to the above Major Field Test, which everyone enrolled in a capstone course will
be asked to take, a few of you will also be randomly selected to take an additional test - The
Academic Profile Test (AP). The Academic Profile (AP) Test measures proficiency in
General Education. The AP test takes about an hour, and like the Major Field Test, must
also be taken in a proctored setting. Students selected to take the AP test will be contacted
via email by the Vice President, and asked to participate in this very important test.

The Academic Profile Test focuses on skills developed in introductory courses in the
humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences. It concentrates on issues, themes, and
ideas. Questions do not ask for recall of specific information but, instead, test a student's
ability to read carefully, make judgments about clarity, correctness, or organization of
material, think critically about issues and arguments, and work effectively with
mathematics.
While the AP test is shorter in length and measures proficiency in general education,
instead of knowledge in your major, it is just as important. It too is a nationally-normed
standardized test taken by students throughout the country. We will use the results of this
test to improve learning experiences and the general education curriculum.



I. Overview and Course Goals
Welcome to Integrative Psychology Online. Congratulations for reaching this point in
your study of the discipline of psychology! This course is designed to help you integrate
what you have learned thus far in psychology by providing an outline that organizes your
learning along the lines of major theoretical perspectives. This course is designed to help
you see the discipline of psychology as a whole from different vantage points. So prepare
to step back and look at the discipline of psychology as a whole and ponder the different
perspectives that ask the fundamental questions about who we are, why we behave the
way we do, and why we think the things we think.



Before you begin, make sure that you visit the Discussion area and become familiar with
the layout of discussion questions. Also, go to the Dropbox and see which assignments
are to be posted there. Finally, the Content area provides you with a link to the course
syllabus and each weekly schedule. Follow the weekly assignment schedule and all will
be well.

During the first week, we will introduce ourselves and become familiar with the web-
based course and the tools we will use to communicate. We will explore the major
perspectives used in psychology and preview the global questions that will help you
plumb your relationship to the discipline as the course proceeds.

During this course you will have a chance to ask and answer your own questions about
how psychology works and how you can put your learning to work in graduate school
and in the workplace. You will develop a Vita, Resume and write a Career Plan. You will
produce an archival research paper that demonstrates your personal perspective on larger
questions. In the process you will begin to see the discipline of psychology in broader
terms.

During week 2 we will engage in discussion of major perspectives and your questions
about psychology and life. You will write an essay on your views of mental illness and
post and respond to questions from your classmates.

During week 3 the discussion will focus on mastering APA, answering questions from
the previous week and getting our minds around the polemic of free will versus
determinism.

During week 4 the discussion focus goes to Careers and Graduate work in psychology.
You will write an essay on an important event and person in psychology and answer
questions from the previous week.

During week 5 you will create a Vita and Resume, respond to questions from the
previous week and write about how you understand science and how psychology uses
science to accomplish its goals

During week 6 you will create a career goals statement and write an essay on the future
of psychology. Respond to questions from your classmates and post your own questions
on the discussion board.

During week 7 you will complete your integrative paper and discuss with peers the
substantive questions they post.

During week 8 you will have the opportunity to evaluate your course of study at
Columbia College and to let us know how to improve the major.

Academic Honesty

All Columbia College policies are in effect as described in the Academic
Dishonesty/Misconduct section of the current college Catalog. All your work must
be your own unless collaboration has been authorized. If collaboration is
authorized you must acknowledge the collaboration in writing. Your grade will be
based in large part on the originality of your ideas and your written presentation of
these ideas. Presenting as one's own the words, ideas, or expression of another in
any form is cheating through plagiarism. If you are unsure what constitutes
plagiarism, review the rules of original writing at the following web site:
http://owl.english.purdue.edu/ This link provides valuable information, including
examples about plagiarism. To review some plagiarism tools available to students,
take a look at http://www.schoolsucks.com and http://www.evilcheater.com. The
content of these plagiarism sites would, if you were lucky, get you a "D" in this
course if you were not caught. It is substandard work indeed, but you will almost
always be caught if you try to cheat, due to the plagiarism prevention tools available
to instructors. Here are two sites that may be of interest:
http://indiana.edu/~wts/wts/plagiarism.html and http://www.plagiarism.com.
Plagiarism will not be tolerated and the claim of ignorance is no excuse. Those
found plagiarizing will be dropped from the course.


Levels of Communication
All email and writing assignments are formal. They should be written as if you are
communicating with a client. The formal rules of proper English and grammar apply for
these submissions, and points will be deducted for misspellings, incomplete sentences,
poor sentence structure, etc. Please respond to at least three other students on every
assignment except for dropbox assignments. Use citations and references on every post.

APA is to be used in the discussion postings. You do need to support your information
with appropriate references . There should be text as well as full references at the end.
The criteria that must be met in conference postings are that your messages be original,
intelligible, and contribute to the discourse. You must communicate effectively. In
addition, you must meet the weekly requirements in order to earn full credit on discussion
assignments. Discussion assignments must be posted by the due dates to earn points. All
discussion and essay assignments should contain citations in text and appropriate
references in APA.

Course Assignments

Course assignments are posted on the Assignment Schedule in the Content area of the
course. Each week the seminar will discuss major questions in the topical areas in
general psychology. Each student will be responsible for generating a question for each
week period. Questions should be posted on the discussion forum by Sunday night and
will be responded to during the following week. Questions should be generated in
response to the weekly discussion or relate to the study or practice of psychology.
Questions should be ones that will generate a discussion rather than ones that have a set
answer to them. Students are expected to actively participate in the classroom discussion
and will be graded on the extent and depth of insight and validity of their contributions.
Integrative Paper: Each student will write an integrative essay in which their perspective
on psychology is evident. Material from the 6 essays (3 discussion essays and 3 posted in
the drop box) and discussion questions should be included. This paper should be typed in
APA style and contain at least 8 appropriate references and citations in text. Your
integrative paper should be well-organized and concisely written. Think of it as the
expression of your philosophy of psychology. It should not be a traditional research paper
in which you explore a topic and generate a thesis. This paper should reflect your
philosophy of psychology and betray the major perspectives that you find yourself most
in sync with. It should be a piece of work of which you are very pleased. Grading of the
essay will follow a rubric. This assignment should be sent to the instructor through the
drop box tool in the course. There is a link in the Content area that discusses this in more
detail.


All Assignments will each be graded according to the point system presented in the
assignment table below. Essay assignments should be posted to the course drop box in
the appropriate folder. Discussion essay assignments should be posted on the discussion
forum. Vita or Resume and Career Goals Assignments should be posted in the
appropriate folder in the drop box.


A Note About APA Style - All text citations and full references must be in proper
APA style format. This is a senior level, writing intensive, psychology course and proper
APA style is mandatory. Despite what you may or may not have been taught in other
courses, there is only one way to write in APA format and that is as presented in the 6th
edition of the APA Publication Manual which is a required book for this course. There
are also two links in the Content Area that give some of the basics of formatting, but they
are not meant to be a substitute for the manual. It is in your best interest to familiarize
yourself with this manual; especially the chapters on formatting text citations and full
references for various resources. I will be providing you feedback on each assignment
regarding not only your content, but formatting as well. Please be sure to read this
feedback and apply my suggestions to future assignments. How you format
your references and citations will impact your grade on each assignment.

Late Assignment Policy
Any assignment that does not arrive at its intended destination by 10:00 PM (CT) Sunday
of the week it is due, or on the final week by 10:00 PM, central standard time (CT) on
Friday will be considered late. Late assignments will receive a grade with 25% reduction
in grade.
