PSYC 344 Spring 2015 Advanced Research in Social Psychology

This course will focus on the process of doing original, empirical social psychological research. We will concentrate on a few social psychological topics, such as stereotyping and prejudice, media influences, political biases, and sports psychology. Students will research and critically analyze and integrate the relevant literatures, and they will design and conduct original research to test hypotheses that emerge from these literatures. We will examine a variety of types of research designs, how to conduct online and in-person research, and how to analyze and understand results, including using SPSS to analyze data.
