Social psychology studies the processes of interaction between individuals and the society in which they live. This includes the ways in which the social world is perceived (e.g., social cognition, attitudes, the self), interactions between individuals (e.g., interpersonal attraction, social influence), interactions within and across group boundaries (e.g., group decision-making, intergroup relationship), the influence of the socio-cultural environment on individuals (e.g., cultural differences, acculturation), and applied issues (e.g., health psychology, work, relationships). This subject will help students develop their understanding of the key theories and research methods in social psychology, and develop a deeper understanding of contemporary problems in the area.
