PY 408 - Special Topics: Psychology of Cinema

For many, film is a magnificent obsession. Films invite us into different lives and worlds and sometimes don’t let go. At least the good films do this: they stay will us for a while. They stick with you. You think about them after you leave the theater and want to talk about them with others. Over time thoughts and discussions recur and the film experience becomes a part of your very being. The mail goal of this course will be to explore different areas of psychology through film. We will also evaluate the accuracy of the ways in which psychology is depicted in the popular media by comparing it to actual psychological research. This course is designed 1) to help students gain a better understanding of the principles of psychology by surveying major concepts and theories in film and 2) to stimulate critical thinking through application of these theories to events in their own lives.

Prerequisites & Notes
This course is being offered during the 2016 summer session with an on campus component.
