Instructor

Adam Morris, Ph.D. candidate

Adam Morris V2 (1)

Adam Morris is a Ph.D. candidate and instructor in psychology at Harvard University. He received his B.S. in psychology from Brown University, where he graduated magna cum laude with honors. Adam specializes in social-emotional learning. Most of us spend decades of our life in school, and yet we are never taught the most meaningful thing: how to be with other people, in a healthy and fulfilling way. Adam seeks to understand the social-emotional skills that support a deep and nourishing social life, and to help people develop those skills. Adam has received numerous awards for his research and teaching, including the prestigious National Defense Science and Engineering Fellowship and the George W. Goethals Teaching Prize. When he's not thinking about social-emotional learning, you might find Adam hiking in the White Mountains, rock climbing, dancing, or playing chess in Harvard Square.

Topics you'll explore

Hands-On Learning


Students will learn to tackle these fundamental questions with the tools of psychological science. Students will learn about classic experiments in psychology, with the goal of getting a hands-on, experiential understanding of how people work and how psychologists study them. They will explore social dynamics; emotions; personality; mental illness; the nature of beliefs; neuroscience; and the relationship between the mind, brain, and body. As a capstone project, they will construct their own miniature psychology theory, design/run an experiment to test it, and present findings to the class.
