Professor Emeritus of PsychologyProfile:
Nathan Kogan has taught in the areas of personality, social, and life-span developmental psychology (with special emphasis on the later portion of the life span). His teaching approach uses the history of a domain as a springboard for a discussion of theories that have fostered recent research in the areas cited. He also has taught research methods, a course that covers design and methodological issues in the field, and carries the requirement that the student prepare a research proposal.
Concentrations: Personality psychology; social psychology; life-span developmental psychology (with special emphasis on the later portion of the life span).
