PSY 226 Psychology of Emotion (3 credits)

What motivates us to act as we do? How do different psychological theories explain the reasons for behavior? Is one type of motivational explanation generally better than the rest? This course will attempt to answer each of these questions through a discussion and comparison of evolutionary, biological, and cognitive approaches to motivation. This course will also consider emotions and feelings within a motivational framework.
