    Units:          4


    Prerequisites:  Graduate standing in psychology or consent of instructor.  See instructor for CRN.


    Course Goals:

    The primary objective of this course is to achieve in-depth consideration and discussion of representative issues (and current related research) in social psychology.  Toward that end, students will read a number of recent journal articles and book chapters, organized in the form of a reader.



    Course Format:

    The course will center upon critical discussion of the issues raised in the chapters and articles. Each participant in the course, as part of the regular course assignment, will be responsible for writing a weekly "mini-essay."  This essay, approximately one page in length, should be related to and/or inspired by the reading assignment for the particular week.   The essay should either pose an issue-related question (and suggest a tentative answer thereto) or involve a theoretical or methodological criticism of one of more the readings for the week. These weekly essays will serve as a beginning basis for discussion.  In addition to the weekly assignments, there will be a comprehensive take home examination at the end of the course.
