Social psychology is not about the development of the self in a vacuum nor entirely the result of nature or biology. We are social beings, and use interaction with others to develop an identity. It is the interaction of nature and nurture that allow us to develop our sense of self–who we are and what led us to the self-concept we have. Social interaction has a huge part to play in our development as unique individuals.Topics covered include: What is social psychology? How was it founded? Who were the major social psychological theorists who helped found the discipline? What are the major social psychological methods used to discover social facts? We will also investigate our social interactions with our environment, issues of conformity and deviance, prejudice, attitudes and behaviors, the groups to which we belong, and attraction and intimacy.
