Political Psychology is an interdisciplinary field and explores topics that lie at the intersection between politics and psychology. During the course, we will explore various theories of political psychology and their application to domestic and international political processes. Some of these theories are concerned with elite behavior in politics; others try to explain mass political behavior. The topics include: political communication and media, social identity, authoritarianism, social dominance orientation, formation of belief systems and political attitudes, decision making and information processing, political leadership, inter-group conflict and cooperation, and collective violence and terrorism.
