PSYC 3369 Understanding the Social World: Social Cognition in Humans and Other Animals (Fall/Spring: 3 )

Course Description

This course will address the puzzle of how we make sense of our social world by focusing on questions such as: how do we carve our world into meaningful social groups, understand what others are thinking and maintain productive cooperative relationships? These questions will be tackled using both developmental and comparative approaches, with the goal of understanding how social cognition takes shape over childhood and what aspects of human social cognition are shared with other animals.
