Understanding and Detecting Deception
This course is an interdisciplinary study of the methods of human deception detection from the perspectives of law enforcement, national security and intelligence analysis, criminal justice, psychology, sociology, and communication.  How to accurately determine when someone is lying is a multi-disciplinary problem and requires a variety of technological and data analytic solutions. Our primary goal will be to comprehend a representative picture of the traditional and contemporary theory regarding the intersection of communication, cognition, and emotion in deception detection. This is a fully online course that will require interaction in the digital platform with the Professor and other students.
