Psychology in Film
The course will take a problem-based pedagogical approach. Each week students will be shown a film, and specific questions will be presented for them to address in a written commentary. To do this effectively, the student will need to reflect upon and apply psychological theories, hunt down additional information concerning each film, competently analyze a variety of film character/writer/director aspects (behaviors, motivations, social influences, etc.) and provide personal beliefs and interpretations.
