About the Course Coursera's largest class is back by popular demand! Beginning July 14, 2014, Social Psychology will feature a fresh line-up of special events, guest experts, and material intended to delight psychology lovers around the world. Course Description from Professor Plous: Each of us is dealt a different hand in life, but we all face similar questions when it comes to human behavior: What leads us to like one person and dislike another? How do conflicts and prejudices develop, and how can they be reduced? Our focus will be on surprising, entertaining, and intriguing research findings that are easy to apply in daily life. Course Format The class will consist of lecture videos, most of which are 10-20 minutes long. NEW IN 2014: To help students who have a busy schedule or don't speak English as their first language, the course will include a one-week break in the middle (August 4-10) so that anyone who has fallen behind can catch up on missed videos or readings.
