Program Description:

Cyberpsychology is the study of the human mind and behaviour in the context of human-technology interaction. It encompasses all psychological phenomena that are associated with or affected by emerging technology. This MSc studies human interactions with other emerging technologies, including the internet, mobile computing, mobile phones, games consoles, virtual reality, digital media and any other technology, which has demonstrated an ability to alter human behaviours. It considers the impact of evolving trends, such as technological convergence, on individuals. Cyberpsychology also examines human interactions with less ubiquitous technologies, such as cyborgs and artificial intelligence. The programme aims to provide graduates with an in-depth understanding of how humans interact with technology and in online environments. On completion of the programme, you will be able to: * identify key psychological concepts relevant to the virtual world * research how people use current technologies * analyse changing patterns of technology use * predict emerging and future trends in technology use * advise on the use of current technologies * critique the field of Cyberpsychology * apply appropriate psychological research methods to the Internet * apply their skills and knowledge to practical contexts * complete a piece of research in Cyberpsychology * work within an online community * evaluate their learning in Cyberpsychology and plan their future learning needs * reflect on the impact of the cyberworld on human life * identify differences or divergences between online and offline behaviour.
