Introduction to Social Psychology
This course attempts to blend a comprehensive overview of social psychology with in-depth lectures exploring the history of the field, reviewing major findings and highlighting areas of current research. The course will focus on classic studies that have profoundly changed our understanding of human nature and social interaction, and, in turn, have triggered significant paradigm shifts within the field. Some of the topics covered in the class will include: individuals and groups, conformity and obedience, attraction, intergroup relations, and judgment and decision-making. The overall aims of the course will be to foster interest in social psychology specifically, and scientific curiosity in general, in a fun, supportive and intellectually stimulating environment.
Theories and empirical findings in the field of cognitive psychology. How do people perceive? How do they remember? How do they think? How such questions are addressed in the areas of memory, language, perception, reasoning, judgment, and decision making.
What is it like to be clinically depressed, to see things no one else sees, to be a victim of a traumatic experience? What are psychological, biological, and social factors involved in depression, schizophrenia, or post-traumatic stress disorder? The subjective experience, causal factors, clinical presentation, methods of assessment, treatment, and sociocultural context of psychological disorders.
A unified view of the developing child. How developmental psychology can be applied to the general understanding of children and the process of growing into adulthood. Findings in the areas of the child's cognitive, language, social, neurological, physical, emotional, personality, and moral development. Strengths and weaknesses of various perspectives and approaches scientists use to learn about children.
Focus on current empirical and theoretical approaches to personality. Lectures will be organized around the following questions central to personality research: How and why do people differ? How do we measure individual differences? Does personality change over time? How does personality interact with sociocultural factors to influence behavior? What makes people happy? What are the physical, mental, and social consequences of personalities?
Applying Psychology to Modern Life
A scientific examination of everyday modern life. Topics include: how research on attention and memory can be applied to improve study strategies; how advertisers persuade and how their techniques can be resisted; how interpersonal conflicts can be avoided through knowledge of common errors in judging other people; and how studies on attraction and love can improve close relationships.
