It's estimated that by 2019 there will be 2.77 billion social network users around the globe. Understanding how people think and behave in these times has to include our online profiles, images, and relationships.

While earning your certificate, you'll study human interactions within:

  • Social media
  • Mobile technologies
  • Video games
  • Virtual reality
  • Artificial intelligence

You'll explore questions such as how cyber and digital products (e.g., internet, mobile devices, social media) are shaping our culture and society.

Whether called behavioral design, product psychology or behavioral science, there's never been this level of interest, excitement or opportunities to understand human behavior and use this knowledge to change how people live. From the highest levels of government to the C-suite, behavioral science is being applied in the real world and tackling big problems.
