See Future Offerings
In this course we cover basic topics in social psychology, e.g. social influences on attitudes and behaviour, attitude change, social cognition, cooperation and conflict, the self concept, interpersonal relationships and methodology. We extend this understanding to look at a series of complex social issues, e.g. rule-breaking, bullying, religiosity and prejudice. Laboratory classes are interactive and include practical and theoretical consideration of issues in social psychology and society.
Two web-quizzes (20% of total grade), a seminar presentation (10%), a lab report (20%) and a 2-hour short answer exam consisting of MCQ and short-answer format section (50%).
The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students.
