Sociology | Introduction to Social Psychology
S530 | 4148 | Stryker


This is a general survey course aimed at informing students of the
range of theoretical and methodological perspectives in use in social
psychology broadly, and in the social psychology done by sociologists
specifically.  It reviews the history and contemporary manifestations
of these perspectives, and their application in a variety of current
substantive areas of inquiry.  It is concerned with suggesting
theoretical and substantive issues motivating contemporary social
psychology, a critical sense of the issues at stake in that domain,
and a strong sense of the relevance of social psychology for his/her
interests in sociology itself or in related fields.
