Welcome to Social Psychology!
People are social animals – we are surrounded by others from the day we are born. In this course, we will focus on how people are influenced by their social surroundings. This class will have both a theoretical and applied focus. Through lectures, readings, videos, and class activities, you will learn the theoretical tenets of social psychology as well as how these theories relate to your daily life (and can be used by you). This course will cover attitude formation, conformity and obedience to authority, altruism, aggression and violence, and relationships.
