We live in a world full of media and digital technologies. Media Psychology is a growing and increasingly important area of knowledge and research. The more we understand about how people interact with media, the more we can realise its opportunities and potential. We hope anyone working with or using media to engage and interact with people will find this website useful, interesting and inspiring. We are a team of researchers and lecturers at the University of Salford. We apply psychology to enhance and understand media design, communication and consumption.
We run the UK’s first and only MSc in Media Psychology in the United Kingdom based at our MediaCityUK campus at Salford Quays. If you would like more information about the course, please contact Dr Adam Galpin.
We also run Media Psychology Services (MPS) – research and consultancy services in user testing, user-experience and social media analysis and engagement. For more information, you can also read about our MPS launch here.
