Key Course Facts

Course Description

It is difficult to over-estimate the impact of modern technology on individuals and society as a whole. From social media and personal digital assistants, all the way to healthcare and education, new technologies have transformed the ways in which people interact with and make sense of the world. These changes are addressed by the new field of Cyberpsychology.

This course offers all the benefits of a ‘traditional’ psychology degree, in that it allows students to develop their knowledge across all the key areas of psychology:

Biological Psychology Cognitive Psychology Social Psychology Developmental Psychology Individual Differences Research methods

The course then allows students to take what they have learnt and apply it to the world of new-technology. Thus, students might consider topics such as internet ‘addiction’, the role of social media in human interactions or the impact of ‘screen time’ on child development.
