PSYC S3664D The Psychology of Emotion: Theories, Functions, & Regulation. 3 points.

Prerequisites: Instructor permission required, contact js3526@columbia.edu

This course will provide an overview of theoretical perspectives and research on what emotions are, what functions they serve, and what roles emotions and emotion regulation play in many parts of our lives such asmental health, social relationships, and decision making. The readings will incorporate a wide array of tools that scientists have adopted to understand emotions at different levels of analysis, such as the use of physiological measures (including brain activity), behavioral measures, self-reports of experience, and data acquired through social media.To present different perspectives on the study of emotions, the course will cover research drawn from such fields as social psychology, clinical psychology and developmental psychology, as well as social and affective neuroscience. Concurrently, we will hone a scientific mindset by approaching readings, presentations,and writing assignments with a structured approach to scientific inquiry that helps us identify the major components of the research process when reading and thinking about scientific research.

Just Added

This course will provide a comprehensive introduction to general theories and methods

related to culture and diversity. In the first half of the course, we will survey a broad range of

topics in cultural psychology, emphasizing psychological research that links culture to mental

processes. In this portion of the course, we will focus on how diverse aspects of humans’ dayto-

day lives—including social relationships, cognitive processes, basic visual perception,

judgments of morality, and mental illness—both differ and are constant across cultures. Next,

we will focus on specific topics that bridge cultural psychology and identity, including group

and identity formation, stereotyping, prejudice, stigma, intergroup contact, and

multiculturalism. Special emphasis will be placed on critically examining research methods

and analyzing real-world treatments of culture based on topics covered in the course.
