PSYC 344
Contemporary Social Psychology Spring 2023
Division III

Class Details

This is a course about current research in social psychology–research that builds on the old classics, and research that opens up entirely new areas of study. We’ll consider topics of current interest, such as implicit bias, gender identity, political polarization, moral judgment, emotion, social media, cultural influences on cognition, and more. Throughout the course, we’ll think about how new studies verify, refute, or qualify older studies, and how psychological science progresses. This course is meant as a follow-up to PSYC 242 and assumes knowledge of social psychology.
