Cyberpsychology at University of East London - UCAS

Course summary

It is difficult to overestimate the impact of modern technology on individuals and society as a whole. From social media and personal digital assistants, all the way to healthcare and education, new technologies have transformed the ways in which people interact with and make sense of the world. These changes are addressed by the new field of cyberpsychology. This course offers all the benefits of a 'traditional' psychology degree, in that it allows students to develop their knowledge across all the key areas of psychology: Biological psychology Cognitive psychology Social psychology Developmental psychology Individual differences Research methods The course then allows you to take what you have learnt and apply it to the world of new technology. Thus, you might consider topics such as internet 'addiction', the role of social media in human interactions or the impact of 'screen time' on child development. This course is currently seeking accreditation from the British Psychological Society (BPS) and covers the core content you need to apply for graduate membership. There are many jobs and careers that are options for you with a BSc Psychology degree. These include jobs within the Allied Psychology sector, such as: Employment Specialist, Psychological Wellbeing Practitioner, Social Prescribing Link Worker, Wellbeing Manager, Mental Health Social Worker, FE Psychology teacher, Research Assistant or Assistant Psychologist. Some of these many require further training that we can help you with. Some of our graduates choose to seek employment in non-Psychology areas. These are jobs in areas where there are employers who want psychology graduates, due to the transferable skills you will gain during your studies. These include Human Resources, Market Research, Civil Service, Business Graduate Training Schemes, Teaching, Third sector & Charity roles, administration, self-employed or entrepreneur, data work in public and private sectors and allied health professions. BSc Psychology is also an essential qualification for students seeking further training and careers in Academia, Research, Clinical, Counselling, Occupational and Educational Psychology. All of these options are possible with our BPS-accredited degrees alongside experience.
