The study of social and group processes is central to psychology, and our department has a long history of basic and applied research in these and related topics. This area has been revolutionized in recent years as a consequence of scientific advances as well as the increased salience of societal issues such as globalization, terrorism, economic disparities, increased awareness of the impact of behavior on health, to name a few. We have expertise and funded research laboratories in social cognition, cross-cultural issues, stereotyping, judgment and decision making, and organizational psychology.
