Why take Social Psychology?
Humans are social creatures. So, to best understand why and how humans think and behave, we must do so in a social context. Social psychology is the study of social interactions and how we are influenced by them. In this class, we will cover a variety of topics ranging from obedience and conformity, to relationships, to conflict. Because you are human (I hope!), every week you will learn something about yourself, your thoughts, and your behaviors. Some of these things will be confirmations of things you already “know”, others will challenge how you think differently about the world around you, and its influence on you.
