PSB303: Perception and Cognition

Credits 3
An investigation into the nature and dynamics of human perception and cognition. Students will explore how we make sense of the world through examining how our cognitive processes and our subjective perceptions, experiences, and interpretations of reality are shaped and influenced by social, cultural, evolutionary, and psychodynamic factors. Students will be exposed to the perspectives of multiple schools of psychological thought: the sociopsychological, the neuropsychological, the psychodynamic, and the transpersonal, while focusing on practical applications on how to facilitate psychological change, personal growth, and transformative learning processes.
