PSY 435 Judgment and Decision Making

Judgments affect our choices ranging from what brand of cereal to whom to marry.  This course examines how we define rationality as well as cognitive, affective, and motivational processes that underlie how we encode and evaluate options. Students are expected to engage with primary sources in the course packet through written weekly responses, class discussion, and a final paper.
