Description

Social Psychology (PSY 110)
Final Project Details
In addition to providing entertainment, films provide detailed portrayals of social behavior.
Your task in this final project is to analyze — from a social-psychological perspective — the
behaviors and events depicted in one of the films listed below. This project is designed to give
you the opportunity to apply theories of Social Psychology into practice. Specifically, you will
demonstrate your understanding of the following social-psychology concepts:
•
•
•
•
Social interactions based on theories of human behavior
Basic levels of what motivates behavior and how behavior informs understanding of
others
Themes of social interactions
How prejudice and racism impact human interactions
How do you do that?
â–ª
Select a film from the list below. Watch the film, in its entirety. It may require watching it
twice so that you are able to observe social-psychological concepts depicted in the events or
individuals in the film. Take notes. Specifically, you want to look for how that concept is
used and how it contributes to the storyline/scene.
â–ª
Using what you’ve learned in the class, life experience, and further research (i.e., peerreviewed journals, and/or findings of relevant experiments you’ve read or heard about), you
will describe different social-psychology concepts you have found in the movie you have
chosen.
â–ª
For each concept, describe a scene that you believe is relevant, ensuring that it aligns with
your understanding of the social-psychological concept. You must support your choices
with evidence from the movie.
â–ª
Provide specific examples of occurrences in the film from social thinking, social influence,
social relations, and other psychosocial domains. Information you read in the textbook
chapters, saw/heard that illustrated a concept theory or helped you to understand/notice/
reflect upon (perception and perspective). Remember you are not watching the movie for
merely entertainment. Rather, you should view the movie with curiosity and attempt to
connect your chosen movie to the psychological content you have studied in the course.
â–ª
Specifically, you must detail in your paper 2 examples of social interactions based on
theories of human behavior, 1 example of a character’s motivation for behavior, 2 themes of
social interactions, and 1 example of how racism/prejudice has impacted human interactions
in the movie. Each example will require explicit support from the movie. Please see the
