|The study of how people think about, influence, and relate to one another. This course addresses a wide range of subjects including aggression, attitudes, conflict, conformity, cooperation, group behavior, interpersonal attraction, obedience, prejudice and discrimination.
|Social Psychology is the scientific study of how our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions are affected by the real or imagined presence of other people. This broad definition will lead us into topics such as the self, social cognition, conformity, attitudes & persuasion, stereotyping, attraction, aggression, and pro-social behavior. The theories and ideas we will discuss in this class apply to almost every aspect of our day-to-day lives as well as business life, and thus I hope you will find that Social Psychology is both an important and exciting course. Class will involve lectures, discussions, demonstrations, and videos if available. Although this is a large class, class discussion is encouraged and expected. It is important to keep up with the reading for the class
