The Social Psychology Ph.D. is designed for students with basic and applied interests in social psychology. We encourage applications from students whose research interests align with or complement those of current faculty and students. Social topics include: prejudice (Brank, Gervais, Wiener, Willis-Esqueda), social cognition (Bornstein, Gervais, Wiener), social perception and attribution (Bornstein, Brank, Gervais, Willis-Esqueda), emotion perception and resolving ambiguity (Neta), decision-making (Bornstein, Brank, Wiener, Willis-Esqueda), group processes (Bornstein, Wiener, Willis-Esqueda), emotion and coping (Willis-Esqueda, Wiener), violence (Gervais), social and affective neuroscience (Neta) and embodiment (Bornstein, Brank, Gervais). Associated faculty members in other related areas are Robert Belli (survey methodology) and Ingrid Hass (political psychology).
