Course description

This course explores the concept of attitudes, the relationship between attitudes and behaviour, and the processes of attitude change. In addition, central topics in the study of social cognition, including social categories and schemas, self-schemas, and affect and social cognition will be covered. The practicals involve the design and implementation of individual projects on attitude-behaviour relations. A focus of the course is to understand how our social environment changes our thoughts, feelings and actions without our conscious awareness.
