Course Description: Social psychologists take a scientific approach to understanding how people can change others’ attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. In this course we’ll read about influence techniques and discuss how they’re used in situations you’re likely to encounter, from buying a computer to sticking up for a friend. By the end of this course you will have both a theoretical understanding of persuasive processes as well as a practical knowledge of how they operate in the real world.

1103.2B: Thursday 3:35-4:25, Uris Hall 394

Course Description: How do we value works of art?  How much money do we need to be happy?  Is there an optimal way to spend our money to maximize our happiness?  Is it possible to have too much money?  This course addresses questions such as these by providing an overview of the latest thinking and research on how money affects the mind.  We will discuss readings from leading academic journals that explore the impact of money on our emotional well-being, our judgments, and our perceptions of other people.
