BA Social Psychology


The Social Psychology Program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to study the cognitive, affective, attitudinal, and motivational underpinnings of social behavior.  Using a variety of methodological strategies ranging from the observation of interpersonal interactions to computerized reaction-time tasks to the examination of neural activity, students and faculty explore behavior. The Social Psychology Program affords students the opportunity to explore these central themes of social psychological inquiry in ways that are tailored to their own particular interests. The programme thus aims to train scholars and researchers who will become the future leaders in scientific psychology. We offer Ph.D. programs in Brain, Behavior, & Cognition, Clinical, Cognitive, Personality and Health, and Social Psychology.
