Course Description: Social Psychology is a scientific discipline that explores how the individual is influenced by social contexts. How do social, environmental, and cognitive factors shape our thoughts, feelings, and actions? This course is designed to answer this question in a uniquely immersive fashion by combining traditional modes of education with a healthy dose of applied, "real world" experiential learning. As a study abroad course, the socio-cultural landscape of the United Kingdom – specifically, Oxford – will serve as an extension of our classroom. Therefore, students will have the advantage of observing and testing theories learned in class in a foreign environment. You will learn about intergroup conflict through a visit to Belfast, Northern Ireland, where you will witness firsthand the aftermath of the Northern Irish conflict (“The Troubles,” 1968-1998); you will assess socio-political theories related to Britain’s economy and response to the refugee crisis (e.g., Brexit) in tandem with a visit to the British Parliament in London; you will apply theories related to persuasion, attraction, and attitude formation in the context of the British media (Royal Wedding fever!); and you will interact with Oxford locals, visiting local cultural centers to gain a sense of regional social identity. Of course, we will discuss issues of cultural diversity throughout the term. In order to make the most of our time in Oxford, the majority of readings and lectures will be completed prior to departure for the UK. This will allow us to dedicate our time abroad mostly to the application of concepts through field trips and cultural activities.
