How does prejudice develop, and how can it be reduced? What leads us to become attracted to one person rather than another? Can psychology help avert climate change, and if so, how? This course offers an overview of classic and contemporary social psychology, covering topics such as stereotyping, romantic attraction, conformity, obedience, and conflict resolution. Lectures focus largely on the results of research and are supplemented with DVDs, class demonstrations, readings, and assignments intended to explore psychology in daily life.
