Course description and aims

Media psychology reveals how we are collaborating with using the media in everyday life by qualitative methods.
In the qualitative method, researchers participate in the community and interact with members, to clarify the feature of practice. Psychology has been an increasing number of qualitative studies since the 1990s. These studies began as a study about the workplace, but also began the study about more familiar fan community in the 2000s.
