4 credits (Spring)
An examination of cognitive biases and heuristics that describe how people think about information when making decisions under uncertainty.  We examine social, emotional, and behavioral influences across laboratory and real-world situations such as medical decisions and jury verdicts, and tools for helping people make better decisions (e.g., computers, formulas, and decision trees).

Prerequisite: PSY 113  and MAT 115 , SST 115 , or STA 209  (previously offered as MAT-209).
