Building on content that was part of the BSc curriculum, this seminar will focus on advanced issues in attitude and persuasion research. We will read and discuss mainly recent research articles. Part of the course may be devoted to developing and discussing study designs.
Topics will include:
- associative and propositional levels of attitudinal processing
- dual- vs single-processing models of persuasion
- lateral attitude change
- implicit measurement of attitudes.
