Psychological Science and Social Change : Psych 1103.1

1103.1B: Tuesdays 12:20-1:10, Uris Hall (Room # TBD)

Course Description: Participation in social movements, from college clubs to protests and lobbying, are persistent features of many countries’ political landscapes. The work that these movements do can include everything from advertising to negotiation, and research in psychology can provide insights on a similarly broad range of topics. In this discussion section we will read original research on topics ranging from persuasion to conformity to burnout, covering classic and modern psychology experiments. We will talk about how this research can help people become better advocates for others and for themselves. 

The Senses: Psych 1103.2

Instructor: Jesse Werth (
1103.2A: Tuesdays 3:35pm - 4:25pm, Uris Hall 394
1103.2B: Wednesdays 3:35pm - 4:25pm, Uris Hall 394

Course Description: The world around us is full of complex stimuli. Our brains are equipped not only to detect these sensory stimuli, but also to construct rich perceptions from them that shape our everyday life experiences. This course explores how our sensory systems accomplish this task, and will focus on behavioral studies as well as anatomical and physiological studies in humans and other animals.
