TPSYCH 352 (Judgment & Decision-Making)

Why we make the decisions we do

Have you ever gone to the movies only to discover how horrible the film is a half hour into it? What did you do? If you’re like most people, you stayed for the remaining hour and a half even though you hated the film. Why? In TPSYCH 352 (Judgment & Decision-Making) students will investigate this and many other seemingly irrational decision-making phenomena in order to understand why we make the decisions that we do and how we can go about becoming more rational decision-makers. To be prepared for this course, you need to have taken TPSYCH 101 and TMATH 110 or equivalent courses from a community college or other school. If you have questions, contact Dr. Stephen Ross (
