The graduate program in Social Psychology prepares students for careers in social psychology, health psychology, or the interface between these two disciplines. Areas of concentration include interpersonal relations and motivation, close relationship and self, social influences on health behavior, psychosocial and cultural influences on health and illness, IRT and social psychological measurement issues.
The social psychology curriculum is directed at developing the student’s strength in quantitative methods and theoretical, conceptual, and biological perspectives that are central to advanced training in social psychology.
Faculty members in the program have continually received support from both federal (e.g., NIH) and local agencies.
