MSc in Cyberpsychology Applications Open

Applications are currently being accepted for September 2008 entry to the MSc in Cyberpsychology.

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 impacted by emerging technology.

Cyberpsychology studies human interactions with other emerging technologies, including the internet, mobile computing, mobile phones, PDAs, 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 MSc in Cyberpsychology is a two-year, part-time programme, running from September to April. Classes are held on campus on Saturdays. Assessment is carried out through assignments - there are no examinations.
