Introduction to Social Psychology

Social psychologists attempt to understand how human behavior is influenced by the presence, or imagined presence, of others. Why do we conform, and how do we persuade? What are stereotypes, and how do they influence our behavior? This course will discuss these and a variety of other questions that intrigue social psychologists, as well as the methods used to study these questions scientifically.
