Culture, Media & Social Psychology

The concentration in Culture, Media, and Social Psychology emphasizes the shared meanings (e.g. stories, beliefs, attitudes, etc) that link individuals to the society that surrounds them. Courses in this area cover varied topics from interpersonal behavior to consumer psychology to broadcast and digital media. Students concentrating in Culture, Media, and Social Psychology learn how our seemingly personal actions, thoughts, and feelings are part of broader patterns of continuity and social change, as our lives are shaped by social forces beyond our individual control.
