Social Psychology is the study of the impact of group life on individual behavior, thought, and personality development. Training in social psychology provides a valuable background for a variety of positions in human service organizations and can provide an excellent theoretical foundation for graduate work in more applied fields such as social work, counseling, public administration and criminology.
