The Cyberpsychology programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton is open to Psychology graduates as well as graduates from other cognate science disciplines (e.g. media studies, computer science), providing the foundations required to pursue a career in the field of cyberpsychology. The course will also be of value to anyone wishing to extend and develop their skillset in their current job and will be relevant to anyone who works within an organisation with an online presence or where understanding human interaction with different emerging technologies would be beneficial.
Students taking this course will use some of the latest technology to enhance their learning and build practical skills. Our newly constructed Cyberpsychology Research Lab provides access to brand new Virtual Reality equipment (including Oculus Rift), state of the art gaming computers and consoles and a host of other contemporary technologies which can be used by our students for their research projects. Students will also have access to our Social Psychology Suite, which can be used for any type of research which requires the discrete observation of participants. The suite includes a one-way observation mirror, viewing chamber, remotely-operated video cameras, plasma screens, plus digital sound reproduction and mixing capabilities.
Given the ubiquity of the Internet, there are a wide array of career paths that would benefit from an understanding of human interaction with the online world and digital technologies. These include, but are not limited to, online investigation specialists, social media managers, cybersecurity experts, employment by social networking sites, online dating companies, games developers, as well as agencies involved in aiding both the young and old in their cognitive development and maintenance. Further, some individuals may wish to study the programme in order to improve their performance in their current career, for example in marketing, counselling, journalism, education or the IT sector.
The completion of this course will also be a stepping stone for any student who may wish to pursue a career as an academic specialising in the study of cyberpsychology.
