Master of Arts, Media Psychology, 10 Month Accelerated Online Program
I am excited to announce the new Master’s program in Media Psychology at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology (MSPP).
The program was developed by good friend and colleague Dr. Erik Gregory, Media Psychology Research Center (MPRC) Executive Director and Head of the Organizational and Leadership Psychology Department of MSPP. Under Dr. Gregory’s leadership, MSPP is launching this exciting hew program in October 2012. The MA in Media Psychology is designed as an accelerated online-only, intensive program with a series of courses over 10-months. MPRC Director I will be joining Dr. Gregory as Faculty Director and as an instructor.
Media Psychology is my passion and I am pleased to be working with MSPP because we share the same commitment to students to create and deliver a dynamic program that is responsive to student needs in the rapidly changing media and social landscape. Our goal is to provide students and professionals with the most current areas of study in media psychology and the opportunity to explore and develop media content through MSPP’s experiential learning model.
This program is designed to give you, as a student, the theoretical grounding you need to find exciting career opportunities in a number of fields, including marketing, branding, public relations, media design and development, information design, organizational communications, healthcare, education, technology development and entertainment.
This program will provide an understanding of the impact and potential of media technologies for individuals and groups across cultures and demographics. Taught by scholar-practitioners and authorities in the field, the curriculum draws on social, developmental, cognitive, narrative, and positive psychologies. You will learn how media and technology can be put to work to achieve socially constructive purposes globally and locally. You will also be connected with a vibrant community at the forefront of this emerging field. You can access the full information sheet in PDF here: Media Psychology Informational Sheet.
