    SOCIAL COGNITION

    Winter Quarter 2007

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Psychology 1, 41.

    This course is designed to provide an overview of the field of social cognition. Social cognition is a branch of social psychology that deals with how social and environmental factors influence how we attend to, encode, and process information and how these mental processes affect subsequent judgments and behavior. Social cognition is a fascinating and fruitful area of research that demonstrates that much of what we see, believe, and remember is driven by forces outside of awareness and that motivation can play a large role in our mental processes. By the end of the course, you should have a much better understanding of how our mental lives are shaped by social forces and how susceptible we are to errors and biases in judgment.
