This page provides a compendium of syllabi for graduate courses in personality psychology from scholars across the country. It is meant as a resource for instructors who will be teaching a graduate seminar or high level undergraduate course in personality psychology.
The syllabi that have already been provided are fascinating to read. They represent some serious scholarship by both the instructors and for the students who take these courses. They are also an interesting window into the personalities of the instructors themselves.
If you use this resource all we ask is that you share your syllabus too.
