Social psychology is the scientific study of how people’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors operate in a social context. Since the early 20th century, social psychologists have examined some of the most fundamental questions about humans as social beings: What is the nature of stereotypes and prejudice? What principles determine people’s behavior in groups? Why are we attracted to some people and repelled by others? How do our attitudes form and how can we influence those of others?

This course is for students with a solid background in bachelor-level Psychology, who are beginning or are currently studying at master’s level. The course is well-suited for students who are particularly interested in psychological research on human thinking and behavior in social settings, and especially students with the ambition to move on to PhD-level studies.

A message from the course leader…

– This course invites students on a journey from classical social psychological studies to modern-day cutting-edge research. Working directly with advanced research literature, students will enhance their understanding of the social nature of human beings and at the same time learn about the craft of doing social psychological science. All teachers on the course are themselves active researchers in their respective areas. For students interested in pursuing PhD-level studies, the course offers a unique opportunity to hone their skills in thinking and writing about research.
