Question

I want to conduct research on the psychological effects new technologies like smartphones and social media has on our creativity, education, social interactions, etc. Is there a program in which I can study the effects of new technology, since the psychological research on this topic seems so scant.

There are definitely programs with people interested in STS (science and technology studies). Looking for scholars in that field might help you narrow your search. Alternately, your interests sound like behavioral/social psychology to me.

Yes, I agree with rising_star.  I was told that when you're at the graduate level, you pick your university of study by choosing a researcher that specifically works on what you want to study. And that's how you decide where you apply. Maybe you should read what some researchers have written on your topic and base your decision off that. But I might be wrong, I am a very early graduate student. Some people here are definetely more experienced with these things.

 

Good luck!
