Here at Psychology@LSE we pride ourselves on our pedagogical approach. Studying Social Psychology at the LSE is a unique pedagogical and cultural experience. The international outlook and cultural diversity of our students and staff coupled with their commitment, passion and determination makes teaching and learning at Psychology@LSE is a pleasure. The interests, questions and debates our students bring to lectures and seminars are a vital component of our research-led environment.
We support a one to one tutorial system in our commitment to meet individual needs and interests. We engender an approach to research which is rigorous, relevant, and has practical application. As argued by Kurt Lewin 'there is nothing as practical as good theory'.
Our seminar and lecture programme includes a host of internal and external academics to draw on a wide range of thinking and research activity.
Our unique Psychology Technical Workshop helps students in their research projects and other experiments. See Erik Lang's experiment on lying
Finally, the programmes are carefully structured to develop competent, rigorous methodological skills at the same time as enabling students to discover personal interests and angles on our most relevant pressing issues that face society today.
Psychology@LSE has consistently achieved excellent results in internal and external assessments as well in the systematic feed-back we receive from our students. We have an impressive record of attracting teaching awards with Cathy Campbell, Caroline Howarth and Sandra Jovchelovitch all receiving the LSE Teaching Prize "for outstanding teaching performance above and beyond that required".
