Richard B. ("Dick") Day

B.A. University of Massachusetts, 1969
M.A. University of Iowa, 1971
Ph.D. McMaster University, 1977

Although in the distant past I conducted research in basic instrumental conditioning processes in small, furry animals, I have devoted my time for the past 25 years or so to undergraduate instruction.

At various times over the years I have taught Introductory Psychology 1A6 (from 1975 to 1996); Introductory Psychology 1A3 and 1AA3 (from 1996 to 2006); Theories of Personality 2B03 (from 1987 to present); Developmental Psychology 2A03 (from 1988 to 1996); Basic Learning Processes 2T3 (in 199?); Abnormal Psychology 3N6 (in 1992 and 1994); Social Psychology 2C03 (in 1994); Psychology Teaching Practicum 3XX3 (from 1996 - 1998), and Adolescent Psychology 3AB3 (from 2008 - 2012).

Currently, and for the next few years (at least, I hope!) I will be teaching the following courses in Level 2 and Level 3:

  • Theories of Personality 2B03
  • Abnormal Psychology 2AP3
  • Positive Psychology 3BA3
  • Attitudes and Persuasion 3CB3
  • Forensic Psychology 3CC3

While I am happy to supervise a limited number of 3Q03 or 4Q03 Independent Library Study projects in the areas in which I am teaching, since I do not have an active research program, I do not supervise 3QQ3 or 4QQ3 Independent Laby Study projects, or 4D06 or 4D09 Senior Thesis projects.
