Graduate Program in Social Psychology
Social Psychology is a field of study focusing on the ways that behaviors, perceptions, and emotions are constructed within specific social contexts. The theoretical foundations of this field of study are both sociological and psychological. The M.A. program is designed to offer students an in-depth theoretical and practical understanding of complex social psychological processes, as well as to provide them with basic methodological tools for analyzing relevant research questions that are of interest to them. The faculty members who teach in the Graduate Program in Social Psychology research topics such as personal and social identities, social cognition, interpersonal relations, agressive behaviors, social stereotypes, relations of assistance and support, group processes, inter-group relations, and gender relations within the family.
The program includes both a research track (with thesis) and a non-thesis track.
