Social Psychology


Social psychology is the scientific study of the way people think, feel, and behave in social situations. It involves understanding how individuals think about the world, how they understand themselves and others, and how they formulate perspectives on the world. In addition, social psychology enlightens us to the development of prejudice and stereotypes. A primary goal of this course is to introduce you to the perspectives, research methods, and seminal findings in the field of social psychology. Equally important is the goal of allowing you to cultivate your skills for analyzing the various social situations and events that you encounter in your everyday lives.
