Webinar Series - MSc Political Psychology - 20 March 2017

The Politics of Gender and Leadership:

An Insight into MSc (Masters) in Political Psychology

This short webinar took place on Monday 20th March 2017 at 1200 GMT

With Dr Ioana Latu, Lecturer in Experimental Social Psychology

Political Psychology is a growing inter-disciplinary sub-field drawing on insights from a number of disciplines including Psychology, Political Science and History. It is concerned with understanding political issues and phenomena by exploring how socio-political contexts and institutions are affected and how they affect individual and collective cognitions and behaviours.

During this Webinar - which lasted approximately 40 minutes - Dr Latu gave a short presentation, typical of normal lecture content, on ‘The Politics of Gender and Leadership’.

The Webinar presentation then continued with a brief description of the various modules of study within our Political Psychology Masters and how these fit into the structure of the programme as a whole, together with an outline of the personal research module for the MSc Dissertation.

During the Webinar, attendees had the opportunity to submit written questions which were then answered in full by Dr Latu before finishing the online session.

You can view a recording of this webinar online (some additional software may be required).
