PSYC 208 Social Psychology
3 Credits

Humans need to belong to a social group, and to live and work for, and with others. We are influenced by others and try to influence others in turn. Following an introduction to the course, and a review of social cognition and studies of the self, learners examine topics such as attitudes, persuasion, confirming, roles, attraction, aggression, and altruism. Additional topics include: group dynamics, competition, cooperation, prejudice, and discrimination. The emphasis is on an examination of how humans behave under a certain social influence and in a certain situation. Whenever possible, effects of culture and diversity on a group of individuals are examined.
