SOC 3307 - Social Psychology

Credits: 3 hrs
Social Psyhcology is a connecting bridge between the disciplines of sociology and psychology.  It is concerned with understanding and explaining how the thoughts, feelings and behavior of individuals and groups are influenced by the acutal, imagined or implied presence of others.  It focuses, therefore, on attempts to understand social behavior by analyzing immediate stimuli of psychological states and personality traits; as well as undersanding social behavior by analyzing societal variables, such as social status, social roles and social norms.  Topics covered include the self in a social world, attitudes and behavior, conformity, social influence and persuasion, prejudice and intergroup relations, aggression and antisocial behavior, interpersonal attraction and exclusion, prosocial behavior and conflict and peacemaking.
Note(s): Students may not receive credit for PSY 3307 in addition to this course.
