Session 2: Psychology of the Arts [2]

Ended Jul 16, 2021

Sorry! The enrollment period is currently closed. Please check back soon.

Full course description

In this class, we’ll learn to think like a research psychologist (observe evidence, ask questions, test hypotheses, analyze and present data) using the lens of artistic behavior. We’ll read research, design, and execute studies, and present our findings about why people sing, dance, paint, and act. Students should be prepared to be active participants in class (lectures will be minimal) and to read occasionally challenging scientific literature.
