Master of Social Psychology

Applied social psychology combines the science of social psychology with the focus at a wide range of social topics. This exciting program provides a thorough explanation of how social psychologists can contribute to the understanding and management of different social problems encountered in the fields of physical and mental health, integration and immigration issues, gender issues, organizational issues, economic behavior, political behavior, environmental behavior, and education. Social psychologists are trained to combine their knowledge of human behavior with scientific research methods and the empirical study of social phenomena; how social influence, social perception, social interaction, non-verbal behavior, conformity, aggression, and prejudice influence individual and group behavior.
