Aims
Students gain a general overview of contemporary psychology, with a strong focus on social psychology. They gain insight into relevant problems, theories, research methods, outcomes of research, and real-life applications.
During the workshops students will have the opportunity to see how research on different topics in social psychology is done and they will run small studies themselves. They also report and present these studies. 
At the end of the course, students will be able to:
  1. Explain the factors that predict human behavior in social situations
  2. Recognize social situations, and identify which (social) psychological processes play a role
  3. Conduct, analyse and present (social) psychological research
