PS 072 Memory in Everyday Life (Fall/Spring: 3)
Satisfies Social Sciences Core Requirement
Does not provide credit toward completion of the Psychology major.
Memory doesn't just help us to excel on exams or to reminisce with friends.
The ability to learn from past experiences makes us who we are and allows
us to function in society. This course uses the study of memory as a way
to explore the psychological research process. We will examine how we remember
and why we forget, how our memories are tied to our sense of self and to
our relations to others in society, and how everyone from advertisers to
professors can capitalize on the nature of memory to influence what we remember
about an experience.
