Social Psychology Colleges and Programs

College Degree Finder

Social psychology is a field of study where researchers attempt to understand how human psychology and behavior is affected in group settings.

Social psychologists examine the following concepts: prejudice and racism, aggression, conformity, social perception, and group behavior. Social psychologists do not solely focus on social influences. They also conduct research on social interaction and perception.

Students interested in this field should major in sociology, psychology, or related fields during undergraduate study. These fields will also acquaint students with key concepts for graduate school. Social psychologists do not administer clinical services, so professional licensure is not required in this field. As a result, job opportunities are available to individuals with master's degrees, but most organizations that hire social psychologists, such as universities, prefer applicants with doctorate degrees in psychology. It usually takes 4-6 years to complete a doctorate program.

Social psychology programs focus on the scientific study of individual behavior in group behavior, group contexts, and associated phenomena. Programs typically include in depth instruction in social learning theory, sex roles, group theory and dynamics, social cognition and inference, attitude formation, criminal behavior and other social pathologies, attribution theory, social development, altruistic behavior, and social ecology.
