Intergroup Relationships - Attitudes and Behaviors: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


The goal of this exercise is to learn more about intergroup relationships and to explore the role intergroup friendships play in perceptions of out-group members. Crosstabulation will be used.

Social psychology is the scientific study of how people and groups interact, associate, influence, and perceive one another. One area of social psychology, intergroup relations, examines the ways in which individuals from different groups (e.g. racial, ethnic, religious, etc.) think about, relate to, and influence one another. This learning guide will explore one type of intergroup relationships: racial and ethnic ties.
