Dear Student,

Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. It appears to me that you are being asked by your professor to show your understanding of what social psychology is as by answering this question, you will have to present its importance to society. I think that the best way to answer this question is via the following:

1. What is Social Psychology?
2. The application of the discipline in society

This outline will allow you to show your comprehension of the field from a bigger vantage point and show your professor that you understand the relevance of the subject to society. I have listed resources you can use to expand on the topic further. Good luck!
