About

On the Cyberpsychology programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton you will learn about how the Internet and digital technologies affect our behavior, attitudes and the societal impacts of living in a digital age.

Overview

You will gain the vital skills and knowledge necessary to be able to work in a variety of sectors that benefit from understanding the psychological impacts of living in a digitally connected world.

This Cyberpsychology programme offered by the University of Wolverhampton will be of particular interest to students who wish to develop psychological insights into human interactions with the Internet and digital technologies, and to learn to apply this knowledge in a wide variety of sectors. For example, in understanding what makes apps/webpages more user-friendly and accessible, and evaluating the psychological factors pertaining to online criminal behaviour. 

The course 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 developing 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. 

What happens on the course?

The course covers the psychological theory behind engagement with emerging technologies, as well as the application of this knowledge to understanding diverse behaviours in real world situations. Although we do not offer placements as a formal part of the course, we have numerous existing connections with companies (e.g. video-gaming, law enforcement, virtual reality etc.) and we are able to help support students to find work experience should they be interested.
