Our MSc degree aims to equip students with the tools to address the complex psychological mechanisms which influence political decision and action. It examines processes at the individual, group, mass, and state levels, and engages with theoretical and empirical analyses. It uses timely issues and puzzles in international politics and highlights the role of political psychology in explaining, describing, and predicting their origins and outcomes.

You will gain a multidisciplinary understanding of the psychological underpinning of International Relations, alongside structured training in Research Methods.

Topics and issues examined include:

- Emotions in crises and conflicts
- The psychology of radicalization, terrorism, and political violence
- Identities of religion, gender, and nationalism
- Trust and empathy in International Relations
- Interpersonal dynamics in face-to-face diplomacy

Our MSc degree has one more distinctive feature: it is offered by the Institute for Conflict, Cooperation and Security (ICCS), a world-leading interdisciplinary research centre, in partnership with the Department of Political Science and International Studies. Our MSc students can also become members of the four ICCS Research Working Groups: Trust; Political Settlements; International Political Psychology; Unmanned and Remote-Piloted Systems.
