"My year at the Psychology@LSE rekindled my passion for social psychology, and the
opportunity for an open, critical and multidisciplinary approach to the
subject to yield urgent insights for contemporary issues and challenges.

I use daily the vast knowledge and the unique perspective that I gained from the MSc in Social Psychology in my work for UK Government research into individuals, groups and societies in areas of conflict."
