Welcome to Social Psychology at UConn!
The Social Psychology program at the University of Connecticut emphasizes
theory-based approaches to social issues (e.g., health, prejudice, and discrimination)
and multiple theoretical perspectives, multiple methods, and multiple levels of analysis
(individual, dyad, group, intergroup, culture, society, international, ecology). A recent
comparison ranked our program 11th in citation impact in the U.S. (Nosek et al., 2010).
