Social Psychology for Pre-Health

Health professionals are increasingly aware of the importance of a holistic understanding of people, one that moves beyond physiology. This course is designed to provide students with a working knowledge of social psychology, a field at the intersection of sociology and psychology, to offer a view of ourselves and others beyond our physical selves. Drawing on research specifically geared toward pre-health students and covering many concepts covered on the MCAT, this course explores how people become who they are — how our selves are shaped by others, the groups we belong to, the social structures around us, and our interactions as social beings — and the tremendous importance of these social processes.
