A British university is offering a qualification in ONLINE GAMBLING.

But the plan is not aimed at making student loans go further — college bosses claim it will help the online industry understand its customers better.

Nottingham Trent’s degree in cyberpsychology will cover online gaming alongside cyber crime, artificial intelligence, social networking and health and education issues.

Postgraduates

Course chief Monica Whitty said: “As well as being academically challenging — with the possibility of students going on to do a PhD — the course has been designed with the needs of industry firmly in mind.”

The program will be offered to postgraduates starting in October.

Students will be searching to find the psychological reasons behind how Internet users operate while in cyberspace.
