Psychology & Technology

The psychology and technology concentration is a multidisciplinary course of study that includes elements of psychology, engineering, computer science, and human factors. Psychology and technology students investigate how technology influences human behavior, and how an understanding of psychology contributes to the creation and design of technologies. Students can individualize their track of study towards computer science, human factors, or engineering. A background in psychology and technology enables students to work at major companies (e.g., Apple, Microsoft, Google) as well as graduate study in Applied Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Applied Cognition, Engineering Psychology, Human Factors, and Human-Centered Design.
