IX. Graduate Programs


Applied Social Psychology (MA, PhD)

Applied Social Psychology is based on the investigation of social processes and problems of significance to the general community and to specific groups. Areas of investigation may include, but are not limited to, aging, ethics, health, policy, equity, community services, the environment, ethnicity, and gender. Diverse research strategies, including qualitative and quantitative methods, are used to answer questions related to social issues. Graduate study in Applied Social Psychology is designed to prepare students for academic and applied research careers in a wide range of settings. The graduate program has two emphases: (1) the pursuit of advanced research, and (2) the design and evaluation of programs that aim to reduce social problems and promote human welfare.
