PSY 547 Seminar in Social Psychology

3 Credit(s) W W-III


 This seminar provides an opportunity for intensive study, in a small-group setting, in social psychology. Students will read and analyze advanced literature in social psychology and will engage in a substantial amount of informal and formal writing. Through revision of written work (based on feedback from peers and instructors), and through discussion of writing processes and conventions used by psychologists (e.g., from the publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association), students will learn to express themselves more effectively. Students will also reflect upon the ways that writing can support learning of advanced concepts in the social psychology subfield. The specific topic will be announced in advance. Three lecture hours per week.
Prerequisite: 
WII course, PSY203S , PSY216 , and at least six credits of PSY courses numbered 300-399.
