Course content

The programme aims to provide a broadly based foundation for research into theories of design in the context of digital media. The programme examines theories and philosophies of digital media, technological change, the mass media, computation, artificial intelligence, and the social and cultural contexts in which such developments take place.

Students of this programme will be part of a dynamic community of researchers, exploring many aspects of computing: its social ramifications, social media, the world of e-commerce, e-entrepreneurship, project-based composition and artistic works, digital architecture and urbanism, new media consumption practices, the co-creation of media, changes to the household, links between vision and sound, branded places, non-places, and more.
