Program Overview:
What does it mean to be an expert? What kind of knowledge and skills do experts have and how do they acquire them? How do contextual factors such as culture or developmental stage influence how we acquire and use expert knowledge? In this course we will travel to London, England where we will visit sites related to recognized experts who are historically important to psychology such as Darwin and Freud. We will meet with psychologists and other experts who live and work in London and its environs. And, we will use 'everyday' London events such as navigating and riding "the Tube" to explore our own acquisition of expertise.  

Prerequisite: PSYC101 (or equivalent) and one other psychology class.
