GOVT 39 Political Psychology

This class examines the psychological origins of citizens’ political beliefs and actions. We analyze different aspects of human psychology, including personality, motivation, values, information processing and emotion. This course is for anyone who has ever wondered how people form their political opinions, why they vote the way they do, and whether ordinary citizens are well suited to democracy.  Readings will be drawn from the fields of political science and psychology.
