PSYC 344
Contemporary Social Psychology Spring 2025
Division III

Class Details

This course surveys recent and cutting-edge findings published in social psychology in the last few years–research that builds on old classics, as well as research that opens up new lines of inquiry. We’ll consider the latest research in each of the major subareas of social psychology (social influence, social cognition, and social relations). We’ll also consider recent applications of social psychological thinking in law, business, health, and well-being. Throughout the course, we’ll think about not just new ideas and new content areas but also about new methods and scientific approaches, modern data analytic strategies, and novel data sources (such as behavior on social media or linguistic analyses of text).
