The two major goals of the Social Psychology program are to develop students' expertise in social psychology and their methodological skills so that they can ask and answer important empirical questions regarding the study of health and well-being. We believe these goals are best met through "learning by doing," based on a program that emphasizes research involvement, intellectual exchange, collaboration, and initiative. Early and extensive engagement in research is the key to maximizing future career opportunities. Whether a student aspires for positions in academia or in the public or private sectors, research expertise is essential.
