This course provides a graduate-level introduction to the theories
and methods of sociological social psychology. It is organized
around the major theoretical orientations in contemporary social
psychology and their application to selected research questions.
Major emphasis is placed on understanding the basic theoretical and
methodological assumptions of each orientation. Although we will
focus on the sociological literature and the distinct insights that
sociology brings to the interdisciplinary field of social
psychology, we will review some material from psychology because
psychological theories and research have often served as the impetus
for sociological developments.
