Course content

Our MSc Cyberpsychology degree will provide you with the opportunity to develop the relevant academic and professional skills to commence a successful career in cyberpsychology, the psychological study of the Internet and digital technologies. Experts in the areas of cyberpsychology, Internet and technology will deliver the course.

The course is designed for both psychology graduates and graduates of other related disciplines, for example media or IT. It may be of interest if you are seeking to pursue a career in cyberpsychology, either in any organisation that uses any form of cyberpsychology (i.e. has a web-presence) or in research or academia.

Students will gain invaluable first-hand practical experience through completion of eight weeks of work-based learning as a cyberpsychologist in a cyber-industry or other professional workplace. You will also benefit from careers advice and mentoring throughout the course.
