Cyberpsychology Courses You Could Take
PSYC 370. Cyber Security, Big Data, & Human Behavior. 3 Credits.
This course will discuss the connections between human behavior, cyber security and big data. Big data tools and techniques allow the integration of diverse data streams from multiple sources providing the potential for better understanding and prediction of human behavior. Improved predictive modeling emerging from big data has several implications including possibly strengthening the security of critical cyber systems. On demand.
PSYC 372. Behavioral Design & Digital Products. 3 Credits.
Understanding how people learn, think, feel, and behave can help you design technology/machines that are intuitive, appealing, and reduce human operating error! Digital technologies, including autonomous machines such as unmanned/autonomous aerial devices and driverless cars, are a fast developing area of technological design and manufacturing. Effective use of these ever-increasingly complex products demands that designers understand and design for how people interact with digital technology. On demand.
CJ 320. Cybersecurity Law and Investigations. 3 Credits.
Cybersecurity Law and Investigations will explore the regulatory, legal, and policy framework of cybersecurity. More specifically, this course will examine laws and policies to reduce cyber threats and address cyber privacy concerns.
