PSYC 39925 - Psychology of Film

Course Credit: 1
Psychology of Film Since the invention of film, psychologists have asked how film, mere projections of light on a screen, can have such a profound influence on the emotions, memories, and lives of people. Focusing on cognitive principles of perception, attention, and comprehension, this course will cover historical and current, cutting-edge research that investigates how we comprehend film, and how research on film can be used to pursue an understanding of the cognitive mechanisms that allow us to comprehend the real world. Prerequisite(s): PSYC-25000; Minimum grade C-
