Course Description

Psychology's empirical perspective sometimes complements the legal system's rule-based nature, and sometimes the two disciplines are at odds. This course focuses on the application of psychological theory, methods, and data to various procedures and issues in the legal system, including eyewitness evidence, the detection of deception, jury selection and jury decision-making, and sentencing.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
