Political Psychology MSc

Course Description


The MSc in Political Psychology is an exciting new programme exploring the relationships between political and psychological processes. By combining modules from the Schools of Psychology and the School of Politics and International Relations the programme offers a unique interdisciplinary focus on key current issues in political psychology.

Information about the existing interdisciplinary research on the links between psychological processes and politics, is available from the Kent Political Psychology Lab website - http://www.kent.ac.uk/psychology/research/political/index.html

Course structure

The MSc in Political Psychology is likely to be composed of 5 compulsory modules and 1 optional module. Modules will be taught both at the School of Psychology and the School of Politics and International Relations. Compulsory modules will cover introduction to political psychology, advanced intergroup relations, public opinion, statistics and methods as well as a supervised empirical dissertation.

This is a brand new programme and the course structure is currently under development. Further details about the course structure will be published as soon as they become available.
