PSYC 454 Judgement and Decision Making
3.00 credits
What should people do? What do people actually do? In this course we investigate how and why the answers to these two questions are sometimes different. We utilize theories in social psychology and behavioral economics to gain a better understanding of why human beings often diverge from "rational" decision making processes and what consequences this has for individuals, groups, and society as a whole.
