Studying Social Psychology

Social Psychology is one of the classic disciplines of empirical psychology and has a high relevance in daily life. Social Psychological research investigates how people perceive their social environment and understand how they are influenced by others in their thinking, feeling and actions (e.g. through instructions or threats, peer pressure, norms and discourses in society). In addition, it is investigated, how people themselves exert an influence on others and – together with other humans – can contribute to social change.
