This emerging new field examines how the behaviour of individuals, groups, organisations and societies are influenced by technology. This covers a wide range of areas, including education, entertainment, social media and cyber security.
This course, accredited by the BPS, will help you to develop a well-rounded knowledge of all areas of psychology. You’ll learn a range of research skills and methods to investigate traditional and online behaviour, and you’ll be able to apply that knowledge in a variety of contexts – including conducting your own independent research.
Your learning will be based within the Department of Psychology where you’ll have access to state-of-the art facilities such as eye tracking technology to help you understand how people, groups, organisations and societies interact with, and make use of, technology.
An optional 4-week or 30-week placement after your second year can add valuable industry experience to your CV, as well as enabling you to put your learning into practice. It will also give you the chance to begin building a valuable network of contacts - a vital part of getting your career off the ground.
