Fundamentals of Social Psych

Spring 2020

Taught By: Faculty TBA

Section: A

CRN: 2324

Credits: 4

Social Psychology is the scientific study of individuals’ feelings, thoughts, and behaviors in real and imagined social situations. It involves understanding how people influence—and are influenced by—others around them. Why do people conform? Why do they obey authority? Why (and when) do people engage in prosocial and antisocial behaviors? Why do people firmly hold on to social stereotypes? What are the best persuasion methods, and how can we use them to bring about social change? In this course, we will examine Social Psychology’s fundamental principles and learn how we can use these principles to get a better understanding of human behavior in our everyday lives. In addition, we will see how theories of human behavior can be tested rigorously via laboratory experiments and field studies.
