The games you play, the mobile phone you use to send text messages, the website where you do your online shopping. Technology is all around us, and is an important part of our lives. Too important to just leave it to technologists.

In Psychology & Technology you learn how technology influences people, and how you can use knowledge of psychology to let people use technology as effectively as possible. But you also learn how you can use psychology to design completely new technology applications such as motivational rehabilitation technology in healthcare, sociable robots or brain‑computer interfaces

Programme content

The programme consists of a number of ‘traditional’ psychology courses such as an introduction to psychology, the brain and behavior, perception and action, social psychology and cognitive psychology. It also includes more applied psychology, such as in the human factors course. Attention is given to application of the theory in projects at the cutting edge of psychology and technology. You need a knowledge of methodology and statistics to be able to carry out your own research, as well as to understand the research done by others, and these aspects are also integrated in the program. You have the option of gaining more in-depth knowledge in a technology subject of your own choice, for which a coherent package of technology courses will be offered.
