We spend billions of dollars every year to address issues caused by poor decisions: jurors convict innocent defendants, employees do not adequately contribute to retirement accounts, young adults smoke cigarettes, etc. Why do people make irrational decisions? This course will provide a comprehensive overview of decision making with an emphasis on applying psychological theory and research to tackle issues in the areas of law, economics, health, etc. Students will learn theoretical concepts to improve their own decision-making as well as help them to positively influence the decisions of others.
