I am a sociologically-trained social psychologist. I was a double major in both sociology and psychology as an
undergraduate at Trinity College in
Hartford Connecticut. I continued this line of study in my graduate work
at The University of Michigan by pursuing a
Master's and then a Ph.D. in sociology with a concentration in sociological social
psychology. I went to a small school called
Browne and Nichols (now Buckingham Browne and Nichols) before that and spent
a year at Chung Chi College, one of
the three colleges of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in between.

Because I'm a social psychologist, one of my favorite courses is Sociological
Approaches to Social Psychology (SOC 401). An applied version of this is
Group Dynamics (SOC 403/MGT 451). I developed this course as a result of
some experiences I had with NTL (National Training
Labs) Institute for Applied Behavioral Science.
Other courses that I teach include Careers, Practice
and Professional Computing for Sociology and Criminology (SOC/CJS 200), a required course for the
curriculum in both
criminology at Le Moyne. It is
for this course that I finally got around to finishing my webpages. I also
enjoy teaching Deviance (SOC/CJS 121). Contrary to popular opinion, deviance
is neither a course that requires experiential learning, not does it have a lab.
:) I also teach this course on-line. It's a little hard to give my
students the cross-dressing experience in the on-line version of the course.
I have taught a number of other courses at Le Moyne
over the years including Intro, Race and Ethnic Relations, Race/Class/Gender,
Sociology of Oppression, Criminology, The Criminal Justice System, Juvenile
Delinquency, Research Methods, Game Simulation and others. Before coming
to Le Moyne, I was a full-time, temporary instructor for three years at
Central Michigan University where I taught
Intro, Social Problems, Social Psychology, Deviance, Criminology, and Juvenile
Delinquency. Fire Up Chips! (I still can't believe that was the
A few years ago, our campus' department of information
technology decided to go with a product called
blackboard. All of my
classes are now "paperless". You can view any of my courses by selecting
the "preview" option at the
blackboard login page.
