Course Aims

This course aims to provide students with knowledge of the development of social psychology and its contributions to the study of the social nature of human beings, including the ways they make sense of the social world, relate to and interact with each other. This course aims to stimulate student interest and curiosity in their own social behaviour and that of others, as well as to equip them with the ability of critical appreciation of social issues from a social psychological perspective. Given the wide array of topics that fall within the scope of social psychology, this course is intended to expose students to some of the major theoretical, assessment and intervention issues in social psychology, its empirical base and applications to practical situations; enhancing students’ knowledge of social psychology creatively and in an applied manner through a discovery-enriched learning strategy.
