This course explores the relevance and complexity of emotions from both a psychological, experiential, and neuroscience perspective. Emotions are at the center of human experience, a fundamental part of communication and evolution that underpin every aspect of our subjective and social worlds. In both humans and other animals, emotions create a bridge between self, other and the environment. This course will cover the nature of human emotion in terms of its physiological underpinnings, variations associated with gender, culture and psychopathology, and the role emotion plays in interpersonal interactions, personality, cognition, decision-making, and human development across the lifespan. Class materials will include a broad range of sources, including research articles, affective science textbook chapters, literature, news and social media, and other sources. This course consists of lectures and in-class discussion. Prerequisite: One Lang fundamentals course, or ULEC 2160, Introduction to Psychology with a grade of C or higher. *Course is restricted to Lang Psychology majors and minors only.
