Learning outcomes

Module: Prof. Trifiletti
The purpose of this course is to provide students with an introduction to Social Psychology, its areas of interest, theories and methodologies. The focus of the course is on how human behaviour is influenced by other individuals and groups. There are four main objectives. First, the course introduces students to the current body of knowledge in social psychology, providing the fundamental concepts and principles. Second, students will develop critical thinking skills, through the application of social psychological concepts and principles to real-life situations. To achieve this goal, the course encourages the acquisition of knowledge that goes beyond mere memorisation and promotes the ability to reflect critically about the causes of human behaviour. Third, the course provides students with a critical understanding of group processes and intergroup relations, with a special focus on the cognitive nature of personal vs. social identities and the relationship between them. Fourth, students will develop the ability to understand and interpret research findings.
