MEDIA PSYCHOLOGY

WHAT IS MEDIA PSYCHOLOGY?

It’s a field with no consensus definition, no clearly-defined career paths, and no easy answers. In spite of that, it can add value anywhere human behavior intersects media technologies. Here’s why:

 

  1. Media technologies are everywhere

  2. People of all ages use media technologies a lot

  3. Young people use them most

  4. Older people worry about younger people

  5. Technology is not going away

  6. We all worry if this is good or bad or somewhere in-between

  7. Psychology is the study of people of all ages​
