Social Psychology is the scientific study of how our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours are influenced by the real, imagined, or implied presence of others. This course provides a broad overview of topics in social psychology. The lectures will cover a range of topics illustrating the impact of social context on the individual by focusing on topics such as the self-concept, social perception, intergroup bias, attitudes and persuasion, social influence, group processes, close relationships, prosocial behaviour and aggression. The course also contains a laboratory component in which students work in small groups conducting social psychology research projects.
