Study Options in Social Psychology of Risk for 2020

Masters at Federation University

For those who are seeking post graduate qualifications at University there are opportunities to undertake Master’s studies with Dr Long at Federation University. The structure of the degree involves two preparation units and a project/long essay supervised by Dr Long.

The Master’s can be done remotely and supervision using Skype so, can be undertaken anywhere in the world.

For those interested in the Social Psychology of Risk the scope for studies is extensive and can be applied to any project. There is no other University globally offering studies in the Social Psychology of Risk.

The project/long essay would seek to apply an SPoR focus to an issue of relevance to the student. A long essay is generally structured in chapters and is like a mini-thesis. Expectations are for approx. 20,000 words.

If you want to know more about an SPoR approach to risk then you will find all you need in the latest book by Dr Long The Social psychology of Risk handbook ( or from any of the free book downloads:
