3. Course contents *

This course explores how humans construe the social world and how their behavior is influenced by interacting with others. It combines topics from Social Psychology and Behavioral Economics, with a focus on social thinking (beliefs, attitudes, and values), social influence (conformity and obedience), and social relations (prejudice, conflict, and cooperation).

Class meetings are organized around one topic, each of which is accompanied with reading material (hand book) and one assigned research paper. Students will be assigned to work in pairs to find one additional research paper and present it to the class.
