In this course, students use the lens of social psychology to examine both social cognitions and social behavior-nearly all phenomena that pertain to the individual in society. Students explore the topics of perceptions, attitudes, relationships and attraction, the motivation to help others, prejudice and aggression, conformity and obedience, group behavior, and the influence of culture, and consider how knowledge of these topics can be used to effect positive social change. Students' application of what they learn in this course culminates in a final project in which they develop a plan for using social psychology research to address a significant social problem. Moreover, students' learning in this course will extend to their personal and professional lives and truly enable them to effect positive social change as a scholar-practitioner committed to doing so.
