Digital Studies

While the field of media and communications have long studied the dynamics of particular technical forms (TV, film, radio, etc.), this MA addresses the fact that today digital processes are transforming work, research, social and cultural life in ways that far exceed traditional studies of media and elude many other disciplines. This MA will enable students from various disciplinary backgrounds to understand and act in a society transformed by networks and computation and develop interdisciplinary capacities. Upon graduation, students can follow a professional career to work in knowledge-based companies, memory institutions such as museums and archives, NGOs and in such fields as new media production and management, public relations, information policy, and in administration and entrepreneurship in digital culture based companies. Students from various disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to apply. The MA in Digital Media and Culture will be taught through an interdisciplinary approach. Students will be exposed to a range of conceptual, practice-based and technical approaches to digital media. The course will benefit students with an existing disciplinary specialisation (outside of digital media) who are looking to add a 'digital' edge to their education in line with the increasing digitisation of work practices across a range of industries. The course will also be suited to students looking to further consolidate existing expertise in digital media and professionals seeking to learn the current state of the art.
