DA3102 Psychological Warfare and Deception

This course surveys current theories of behavior, cognition and perceptual bias, linking them to applied military issues across the spectrum of conflict, from irregular to high-intensity warfare. The effects of increased information flows on the prospects for accurate assessments in crisis and war are also considered in detail. Case studies and experimentation complement the theoretical framework initially advanced, with the students working in teams during this portion of the course. Prerequisites: None.
