This course will focus on the psychology of judgment and decision making. The aims of this course are to explore theories of human judgment and decision making in light of descriptive data drawn primarily from empirical studies in cognitive psychology and neuroscience.
Students will learn how to research and to write about topics in this field, drawing on a variety of information databases, and learning how to evaluate the quality, methods, and relevance of difference sources.
