Political Psychology

This course explored political thought and action through the lens of psychological science. The introductory discussions focused on the varieties of perspectives in psychological science and competing constructions of human nature. The course then examined the relationship between the psychological citizen and political systems, politics and personality, and political decision-making, among other things. This class (PSYC 375) was taught by Fathali Moghaddam as a Doyle Seminar (small upper-level classes that foster deepened student learning about diversity and difference through research and dialogue).
