This MA focuses on how digital technologies are used in everyday life and offers students the opportunity to consider how we might design better futures by exploring the intersection of networked sociality, organizational practices, and IT design.
This program has multidisciplinary components:
- Internationally established professors in digital culture studies provide knowledge about the social impact of digital technologies.
- Computer scientists work with students to develop hands-on knowledge of how digital forms of communication and interaction are designed and programmed.
- Professors from information studies and media studies help students build a strong grounding in the political, social, and economic structures of 21st Century organizations and institutions.
Courses are designed to help students build competencies to engage with and become active citizens and critical consumers in a digitally saturated life.
The program aims for candidates to be armed with skills for innovation and a strong understanding of value-creation as well as the complexities of digital technologies in cultural contexts. Graduates should be well-qualified to take jobs in private as well as public sectors that use and want to further develop social media as part of internal or external infrastructures. Candidates could work with teams to develop social media services for citizens, clients, or customers. They could work to incorporate digital media as part of organizational change management. They could conduct research to identify trends that can be used to build more effective market analyses.
