If psychology is the scientific study of mental processes, social psychology details how socio-cultural and individual-difference factors contribute to these mental processes. Research in social psychology at U of T Scarborough focuses on important social issues and covers many of the major topics within the field. Particular strengths include social cognition, interpersonal and intergroup relations, status hierarchies, aesthetics, personality structure, emotion, morality, and social neuroscience. Although broad, these research interests overlap in significant ways, providing a broad concentration in social identity, culture, and affective science.
