DCU is offering a BSc in Psychology and Disruptive Technologies. The course offers you the unique opportunity to understand human behaviour in combination with emerging technologies that are evolutionising how we all live, work and play. Such technologies include artificial intelligence and machine learning, social robotics, mixed reality and more. While companies like Airbnb, Netflix and Uber are disrupting business and society, this can raise challenges as well as open up opportunities.

The 4-year programme is structured to cover introductory to advanced levels of psychology across the five core pillars of undergraduate training: developmental and lifespan psychology; biological psychology; social psychology; cognitive psychology and the psychology of individual difference. A core focus running throughout the programme is research literacy supported by a combination of practical and virtual laboratory activities and digital innovation based on cutting edge technologies that positively disrupt the status quo and underpin societal change.

The course will cover a dynamic range of applied areas and cutting edge options from the Psychology of Innovation and Disruption across diverse education, health, business and industry settings. Throughout the programme, you will also develop a detailed understanding of the theories and innovations of disruptive technologies that significantly reshape the world that we live in, and also examine mechanisms for building trust in digital interactions.

In Year 3 of the programme, you will complete an internship in various fields including digital technology and learning, digital therapeutics, and other applied areas within education, health and wellbeing, industry and community sectors.

In Year 4 of the programme, you will have an exciting opportunity to complete a final year project bringing together your advanced and unique training in Psychology and Disruptive Technologies.

The BSc in Psychology and Disruptive Technologies has been developed in line with pre-professional Psychological Society of Ireland accreditation principles and is currently pending accreditation.
