Instructions The five major perspectives of modern psychology are important to understand because they are central to other key concepts and theories throughout the course. For example, you will learn about them again in our discussion about personality and psychological disorders.

While we read about the major perspectives of contemporary psychology in a textbook, these perspectives are also applicable to our everyday lives. Describe in detail a current event or a well- known topic of public interest that you find fascinating or intriguing. Then, choose at least two-three of the major perspectives (neuroscience, psychodynamic, humanistic, behavioral or cognitive) and discuss how they might provide insight into your chosen current event or well-known topic. Ensure that you make clear connections between your current event or well-known topic and the major perspectives you have chosen. Creativity is encouraged!

Some examples of major topic areas you could research further include: politics, social issues, entertainment industry (music, art, movies), sports, business, science, world news or technology.
