In 1964 the late Professor Hilde Himmelweit founded the Department of Social Psychology at LSE. The scholarships are a tribute to her work. This scholarship is available for those applying for study full time on the MSc Social and Cultural Psychology.
MSc Social and Cultural Psychology explores the ways in which culture and society shape how people think, behave and relate to each other.
We draw on theories, concepts and methods of social and cultural psychology to understand how societies think, how communities develop a sense of identity and how they represent controversial and important issues affecting local and global public spheres.
The MSc aims to give you a grounded understanding of theoretical and applied issues as well as a sophisticated training in a broad range of research methods. It will advance your knowledge and professional competence in the area of social and cultural psychology, and enhance your independent thinking and analytical skills.
The programme is unique in its combination of social and cultural approaches to psychology and is one of the world's leading programmes in this field. It offers an extensive choice of specialist courses, addressing a variety of theoretical and applied issues in social and cultural psychology and in the social sciences as a whole.
