Social psychology is the formal study of the ways in which individuals affect one another. Examine how people's attitudes, biases, and behaviors are influenced by other people and how these influences affect society as a whole. Explore the ways social psychologists use the scientific method to study people's thoughts and behaviors in social situations and how ethical principles govern their research. Discuss and debate topics such as the self, prejudice, gender, race, conformity, obedience, aggression, group influence, and pro-social behavior. Drawing from examples in the media, law, politics, history, culture, and our own lives, examine how we are affected by social relationships and what a difference these relationships make in the way we live"
