> PSYC380-2  Psychology in Film
> Instructor: Adam Fominaya
> Mondays & Wednesdays, 12:10 - 3:50, June 2 - July 23, 2014
> Psychological theories provide a framework for better understanding human behavior, emotion, and cognition. Film provides a unique perspective on these theories, both in terms of how human behavior is depicted in film (sometimes accurately, sometimes not), and how filmmakers use psychology in the creation of their work. The goal of the course is to utilize a framework based on scientifically grounded psychological theories to evaluate the accuracy of psychology as depicted in films.  Student's should expect to view films and television in class while critically evaluating the nuances of depicted behaviors and emotions.  Student's coursework will center around individual short responses as well as group and class discussion. This course can be used as a Social Science general education elective. (Prerequsite: one prior psychology course, or permission of instructor).
