The human brain is an imperfect machine. What is generally considered normal thought and behavior is actually rife with shortcomings. Becoming humbly aware and addressing these flaws in perception, memory, and cognition can lead to better critical thinking and beneficial behavioral consequences. This one credit UB Seminar course will survey our cognitive limitations and relate their effects to personal and social issues. Students will explore topics such as the nature of perception and memory, cognitive biases and distortions, use of logical fallacies for bolstering personal positions, and the thought processes we should dubiously rely on.
Enrollment Requirements
Prerequisites: Students who have already successfully completed the UB seminar course may not repeat this course. If you have any questions regarding enrollment for this course, please contact your academic advisor.
  Course Description
The one credit UB Seminar is focused on a big idea or challenging issue to engage students with questions of significance in a field of study and, ultimately, to connect their studies with issues of consequence in the wider world. Essential to the UB Curriculum, the Seminar helps transition to UB through an early connection to UB faculty and the undergraduate experience at a comprehensive, research university. This course is equivalent to any 198 offered in any subject. This course is a controlled enrollment (impacted) course. Students who have previously attempted the course and received a grade of F or R may not be able to repeat the course during the fall or spring semester.
