Connecting Social Psychology to the world around us.

Social Psychology introduces students to the science of us: our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in a changing world. Students learn to think critically about everyday behaviors and gain an appreciation for the world around us, regardless of background or major. Social Psychology’s conversational voice allows students to access and enjoy this exciting science. Students find scientific explorations of love, hate, conformity and independence, prejudice and helping, persuasion and self-determination.
