Social Psychology

Concentration in Social Psychology

Both the Sociology and Psychology Departments offer courses relevant to students with interests in social psychology. The intent of the Social Psychology concentration is to provide students with a solid disciplinary foundation along with specific coursework to strengthen a cross-disciplinary social psychological perspective. Coursework will emphasize research skills, theoretical analysis, and applied work in areas intended to prepare students for careers in law, consulting, research, and social policy, as well as many other areas. In addition, the Social Psychology concentration is ideal for graduate school preparation. See the department chair for specific requirements.
