Aims
 

At the end of the module students are familiar with the most important theories and concepts of Social Psychology* and Social Developmental Psychology**. Students are able to:

  • name and explain the most important theories and concepts
  • identify links between different theoretical concepts (differences and similarities between various theories)
  • recognise theoretical concepts in examples drawn from daily life
  • apply the theories to predict the behaviour, emotions and thoughts of people (children) in specific scenarios
  • evaluate the socio-psychological research of others critically
  • name and describe several field-specific research methodologies that are widely used in Social Psychology (such as implicit measures) or Social Developmental Psychology


* This relates to theories in respect of social perception (self-observation, observation of others and groups), social influences (conformity, group processes, attitudes & behavioural influences) and social relationships (altruism, aggression & attraction).
** This relates to theories in respect of moral development, influence from peers & the media, and upbringing.
