Psychology 150 - USA: The Psychology, Film and New York City
Movies are a powerful and enjoyable medium for learning about and understanding our own psychology. Movies evoke feelings of strength, tension, excitement, vulnerability, and passion. Students will learn how to apply Developmental and Positive Psychology to the understanding of movies viewed in class. They will also go to New York City, where movie going is a favorite past time, for seven days. They will see five movies, visit some famous movie theaters, explore the Museum of the Moving Image, visit on-location sites, and take a movie tour. The final project will be based on the New York City experience.
