Evaluation of grades
The grade of the module examination is also the module grade.
In this lecture, we first consider aspects of developmental, personality, cognitive, and motivational psychology that are fundamental to social cognition and social action. We then address core social psychological issues such as attitudes, stereotypes and prejudices, and attribution of behavior to person or situation. Finally, we consider various facets of acting in social contexts. These include more positive phenomena such as group processes and helping others, but also disturbing phenomena such as aggression, conformity, and obedience. We often take examples from history, politics, and literature as our starting point and rely primarily on experimental results.
