Program Overview

Program Description:
Social psychology is the study of the mental operations that underlie individuals' perceptions of, influence over, and interactions with other people. As one of the top social psychology graduate programs in the country, Northwestern trains Ph.D. students in theory, research and teaching in preparation for academic careers. The Ph.D. program provides intensive training in research methods, statistical analysis, and a wide range of theoretical perspectives focusing on how thinking, feeling, and behavior influence and are influenced by the actual or imagined presence of others. The program has a particular focus on attitudes and social cognition. Faculty research centers on basic processes of social perception, memory, and psychophysiology as they relate to attitudes, expectancies, impressions, stereotypes, and self-inference.
