PSYC 204 - Lab in Decision Making


Each of us makes dozens of decisions in a day. Some are relatively inconsequential (such as what brand of toothpaste to buy) whereas others may be life changing (such as which college to attend). What is involved in decision-making? What roles do context, ethics, commitment, purpose, and cognitive biases play? Students will evaluate existing studies, find and/or apply examples of decision-making psychology research in everyday life, and conduct analyses then present empirical findings in APA style during a student research conference.
