Inhalt: This lecture offers an introduction to the field of Social Psychology. During class, prominent theoretical approaches, social psychological research methods, and major findings from classic and contemporary empirical studies will be reviewed and discussed. Some of the topics covered in this lecture include: social cognition (e.g., automatic and controlled thinking), social perception (e.g., nonverbal communication and causal attribution), self and identity (e.g., self-esteem, personal and social identity), attitudes and attitude change (e.g., bases of attitudes, persuasion), group processes (e.g., conformity, group decisions), prosocial behavior (e.g., altruism, bystander intervention), aggression (e.g., different forms of aggression, effects of media violence), and stereotypes, prejudices, and discrimination (e.g., implicit prejudices, intergroup contact). Theories and empirical findings will be illustrated with real-life examples, critically evaluated, and applied to pressing social problems.
