Self & Society: Introduction to Social Psychology PSYCH 70 / SOC 2 Spring 2017 Tuesdays & Thursdays, 10:30-11:50 AM Hewlett 200 Professor: Alia Crum Professor: Robb Willer E-mail: [email protected] E-mail: [email protected] Office Hours: Tues 3:00-5:00 Office Hours: Thurs 2:00-4:00 Office Location: 244 Jordan Hall Office Location: 226 McClatchy Why do people behave the way they do? This is the fundamental question that drives social psychology. Through reading, lecture, and interactive discussion, students have the opportunity to explore and think critically about a variety of exciting issues including: what causes us to like, love, help, or hurt others; the effects of social influence and persuasion on individual thoughts, emotion, and behavior; and how the lessons of social psychology can be applied in contexts such as health, work, and relationships. The social forces studied in the class shape our behavior, though their operation cannot be seen directly. A central idea of this class is that awareness of these forces allows us to make choices in light of them, offering us more agency and wisdom in our everyday lives. Learning Objectives By the end of this course, students should be able to: Describe foundational concepts in social psychology, along with many of the important studies associated with these concepts and themes. Recognize and appreciate the practical implications for these concepts and themes – in other words, how they impact everyday life as well as practice in law, business, health, etc. Understand the basic components of empirical research in psychology, generate original research questions, and define methods for addressing those questions.

    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.
