PS 341 Psychology of Morality (Fall/Spring: 3)

Prerequisite: PS 241 or PS 272 or permission of the instructor
How do we decide between right and wrong? When do we behave well, when do we behave badly, and why? In this course, we will explore moral judgment and behavior - the evolution and development of human morality, its psychological and brain basis, and moral "pathology" in clinical populations. Topics will include: emotion, mind perception, self-concept, motivated cognition, group membership, and connections to religion, politics, and the law.
