Social Psychology

Cooperators of the  section social psychology



The research conducted by members of the social psychology section is centred along the following policy lines. Firstly, besides contributing to the solution of fundamental and theoretical problems, we believe that it is important to pay attention to the social and applied relevance of our research. Secondly, we consider social behaviour as resulting from contextual variables as well as individual differences, and hence we try to take into account the role of both types of. variables. Thirdly, we opt for a broad approach, resulting in a considerable variation both in topics and methods. This research program covers a substantial number of fields and involves experiments, vignette studies and questionnaires.

 

The members of the social psychology section teach courses to students in Psychology, Criminology, Law, Political Science and Sociology. Annually more than 1600 first year bachelor students take our introduction to social psychology course. In addition we teach advanced courses on Social Cognition and Group Processes and on Political Psychology. Practical exercises and training in research skills is provided for students taking the minor in social psychology targeted to master students in sociology and to students in theoretical and experimental psychology.
