  • Overview

    "We see the world as we do, not because that is the way it is, but because we have these ways of seeing" (Wittgenstein). Social Psychology is a scientific discipline that explores how the individual is influenced by social contexts. Students will learn to identify how social, environmental, and cognitive factors shape our thoughts, feelings, and actions. The course covers theories about attraction, aggression, conformity, and pro-social behavior. As this course is taught to Americans living in Italy, students will have the advantage of observing and testing theories learned in class in a foreign environment.
