4. Course Description:

As humans, we are inherently social beings; our thoughts, feelings, attitudes and behaviors are greatly influenced by other people. In this class, you will learn what science can tell us about the ways that people think, feel and behave in social situations. Social psychologists research the answers to many questions that are relevant to our everyday lives, such as, “How can the same person act one way with one group of friends and be totally different with another group?", "Why are we attracted to some people and not others?", "How can students stand by when a peer is getting teased and bullied?”, and more! You will examine topics including Social Perception, Social Cognition, Attitude Formation and Change, Group Processes, Attraction, Individual Relationships, Altruism, Aggression, Prejudice, and Discrimination.
