We are a leading international centre dedicated to consolidating and expanding the contribution of social psychology to the understanding and knowledge of key social, economic, political and cultural issues.

How can the theory and practice of social psychology enhance individual, collective and organisational well-being and effectiveness in specific social settings?

Psychology@LSE is one of Europe's largest academic centres of social psychology. Our teaching and research cluster around four MSc programmes, each with a PhD track. Each of these programmes explores the role of communication and action in changing human behaviour and experience in particular contexts.

Thematic priorities include: social inequalities, science and technology, organisational and economic life, and health and social care.
