Course Description and Objectives:
This course will provide students with an in-depth examination of social psychology. We will employ a cross-cultural perspective in our coverage of mainstream topics in social psychology. In this context, we will make cross-cultural comparisons, assess the influence of culture on theories and research findings, and discuss normative explanations for social behavior. Specific course content will include: research methodology and ethics, attitudes, attributions, persuasion, obedience and conformity, theories of attraction, prejudice, altruism and aggression, gender influences on social behavior, social influences on health behaviors, group dynamics and intergroup relations. By the end of the course, students will be able to apply social psychological theories and constructs to their everyday lives. In addition, students should be able to think critically about psychological theories and research, and be proficient at reviewing the psychological literature and preparing papers using APA format.
