Psyc343: Introduction to Social Psychology Spring 2006 M & W 3:00-4:15 Instructor: Laurie O’Brien, Ph.D. email: [email protected] Office: 3070 Stern Hall Phone: 862-3320 Office Hrs: M 11-12, T 2-4, and by appointment Teaching Assistant: Jesse Corlew-Haines email: [email protected] Office: 3025 Stern Hall Office Hrs: M 1-2, W 1-2 Textbook Social Psychology (2005, 8 th edition) Author: David Myers Publisher: McGraw Hill, New York, NY COURSE OVERVIEW This course is designed to be a general introduction to social psychology. Social psychology is the scientific study of the way people think, feel, and behave and how their thoughts, feelings, and behavior are influenced by other people. It involves understanding how people influence, and are influenced by, the others around them. A primary goal of this course is to introduce you to the perspectives, research methods, and empirical findings of social psychology. Equally important is the goal of cultivating your skills for analyzing the social situations and events that you encounter in your everyday lives. Finally, throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on developing critical and integrative ways of thinking about theory and research in social psychology. Because of the size of the class, the format of the class will necessarily consist primarily of lectures. However, if you have questions about the material or are unclear on a point that I am trying to make, I encourage you to ask questions during the lecture. If you prefer not to ask your questions in class, you can visit the TA or me in office hours. COURSE REQUIREMENTS Your grade in this course will be determined by your performance on four pop quizzes, four exams throughout the semester, and a final exam.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
