Introduction to the programme

Study human consciousness, personality, development and socialisation

Social Psychology of Everyday Life is a subject which you will study as a part of your bachelor programme at Roskilde University.

Social Psychology of Everyday Life focuses on social psychology in a global context. It deals with the individual human being who talks, acts, interprets and experiences, and who is part of an interaction with other people, with culture, society, nature and with her- or himself.

Social Psychology of Everyday Life focuses on the relationship between the individual and society and thus, on how people’s practice as individuals and as participants in groups, relate to their socio-cultural conditions. Social Psychology of Everyday Life therefore, deals with the questions of how humans think and react, why humans think and act as they do, and how they interact with culture and society through their actions.

The objects of study are human consciousness, personality, development and socialisation – the process of becoming a subject. How do we become the people we are? What does identity mean? How do we learn? How do we function in social contexts? How do we affect, and how are we affected by, the social relations and settings of which we are a part?

All teaching and project writing is conducted in English.
