  Requested action: Change of course description to include a prerequisite____________________

  Current: PSY 3023 Social Psychology

  Social Psychology is fundamental to the study of psychology and the human sciences. In
  this course, major theories, methods, and research findings that comprise the discipline of
  social psychology are examined from a critical standpoint. The primary objective of this
  course is to increase students’ awareness of the social, historical, and political dimension
  to psychological understanding. The application of theoretical and empirical work to real-
  world social problems is emphasized.

  Proposed: PSY 3023 Social Psychology

  In this course, major theories, methods, and research findings that comprise the discipline
  of social psychology are examined from a critical standpoint including conformity, social
  influence, social cognition, prosocial behavior, prejudice, group processes, interpersonal
  attraction and social comparison. The primary objective of this course is to increase
  students’ awareness of the social, historical, and political dimension to psychological
  understanding. Prerequisite: PSY 1113.


  Reason for requested action (attach no more than one page if space provided is inadequate):

      To prevent students from registering for an upper division course without adequate
      preparation; to bring the course description more in line with the 2009-2010 Common Course
      Description from the Course Equivalency Project as required for inclusion: “A psychology
      course with a prerequisite of Introduction to Psychology offered at the 2000 level or above.
      The course will cover topics such as: conformity, social influence, social cognition,
      prosocial behavior, prejudice, group processes, interpersonal attraction and social
      comparison.”

  Will requested change require additional funds?       No                   Yes

  If yes, please specify the amount of the additional costs, the source of the funds, and how they will
  be expended (if explanation exceeds space provided, attach no more than one page).
