The MSc Social Psychology looks at a range of topical social issues through the lens of social psychological theories in order to develop understanding and ideas for intervention. It is concerned with the scientific study of how we think about, influence and relate to one another.
The programme deals with, amongst other topics, issues of power and influence, the study of how individuals and groups interact to construct and maintain identities and how these are related to societal change. Through this, the programme aims to provide you with an awareness of the historical and philosophical background of social psychology and an in-depth knowledge of contemporary theoretical and methodological approaches to the discipline. You will be part of a diverse group of students at the cutting edge of innovative attempts to apply social psychological theory to everyday thought, emotion and behaviour.
