PSYC 8706 - Advanced Social Psychology♦


(5 cr.) Students in this course are provided with an advanced analysis of social psychology, including a review of the historical context and cultural grounding of social psychological theory. Students devote special attention to sociocultural psychology and the broad base of knowledge related to history, research methods, and applications to social and cultural processes. They explore and discuss topics related to small-group processes and dynamics and shared cognition, attitude development and shifting, social cognition and emotion, self-concept and self-regulation, conformity, affiliation and independence in groups, group performance, leadership, cross-cultural psychology, and biopsychosocial diversity. Students demonstrate their understanding of theories and concepts through a final analysis of a social problem occurring in their own community for which they propose an intervention to ameliorate the problem. (Prerequisite(s): PSYC 8247.)
