Digital processes are transforming culture, the economy and society. This course explores the origins and impact of these changes. It gives you the training to understand and make use of digital media critically, creatively and productively.
If you’re pursuing a professional career in knowledge-based industries, whether in museums, marketing agencies, businesses, charities, new-media production companies, public relations or think-tanks, this course is for you. It will equally qualify you with the academic skills for further doctoral study.
You’ll develop a critical and practice-based understanding of the impact of links, queries, downloads and uploads, file formats, archives, databases and networks more generally. Core modules introduce you to the conceptual and methodological dimensions of the digital realm. You then select two or three option modules in areas that cover the theoretical and socioeconomic aspects of digital culture, urban science, big data and complexity. A dissertation allows you to explore your own questions and interests in more depth.
