Student Feedback

Enrollment:  50 students

This is an upper-level elective course that covers the research methods and major theories of social psychology.  Students are expected to use critical thinking skills to apply course material to explain real world situations.  Topics covered include:

  • Social perception
  • Attributions
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination
  • Attitude formation
  • Persuasion
  • Group dynamics
  • Social Psychology and the Law

Taking advantage of Birmingham’s unique place within the history of the Civil Rights Movement, I arranged for students to make a trip to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute.  You can learn more about this particular classroom innovation, and read some of the students’ impressions, in the “Meet the Magic City” section of this site.
