General Information


This class meets Tuesday and Thursday from 5:00 to 6:30 in room D430  in the Muenzinger Psychology.

The best ways to contact me are in person and via email. Don't bother leaving me voicemail, I don't reliably  listen to it.


The required required readings for this class will primarily consist of journal articles that will be made available on-line.
