We live in an age where there is an ever increasing reliance on technology. From online shopping and banking to maintaining family and friend networks, many of our daily behaviours now occur in the online world or are mediated by technology. As new and emerging technologies become ever more prevalent in society, it is important that we understand the psychological and societal impact of using them. Cyberpsychology as a discipline investigates the psychological processes and behavioural outcomes of engaging with new and emerging technology, including the Internet, smartphones, virtual reality and gaming devices. It also considers the effects of living in a digital age on both our online and our offline lives.

Assessment methods

This course will cover both a theoretical base to understanding the psychological processes associated with engaging with emerging technology as well as the application of this knowledge to understanding diverse behaviours in numerous real world applications of technology. There will also be a strong emphasis of the course on online research methods and the ethics involved in collecting data online. The course will also provide students with hands-on practical experience of using some of the latest technology, including eye-tracking equipment, virtual reality technology and gaming consoles/computers. Teaching on the programme will be research-informed, with the core modules managed and run by research active academic staff. Teaching methods will vary, and will include lectures, webinars, seminars and interactive workshops to support learning with practical experience of using the latest technology.
