    SOCIAL COGNITION

    Spring Quarter 2007

    Units: 4
    Prerequisites: Graduate standing or consent of instructor. See instructor for CRN.

    Note that this course was initially going to be offered under it's future official number: PSC 243. However, due to an administrative snafu, the course must be offered as a 290 this quarter.

     

    Note also that this course may satisfy the breadth requirement.

     

    The purpose of this class is to explore the intersection of social and cognitive psychology. We will examine how prominent questions in social psychology (e.g., automatic and controlled behavior, causal attribution, impression formation, social categorization and judgment, stereotyping, attitude formation and change, self-perception; motivated cognition) may be informed by a more thorough understanding of mental representations and cognitive processes. In turn, we will see how research on relatively complicated social stimuli inform and constrain models of cognition.
