DescriptionHow do social media influence us? How do digital technologies constrain or liberate social practices? How do digital technologies shift our understanding of production, commerce and organisation?
The MA in Information Studies – Digital Living focuses on digital technologies as they are used in everyday life. It’s all about selfies, cat videos and crowdfunding. This is a new discipline, and students who pursue it have the opportunity to consider how to design a better future by exploring the intersection of networked sociality, organisational practices and IT design.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates will be skilled in innovation and will have a strong understanding of the complexities of digital technologies in cultural contexts. This will qualify them for a variety of careers in both the public and private sector. There is a growing need within private companies for people who can build bridges between different departments when working with social and mobile media, and in the public sector, organisations are pushing to digitise public administration. Many students may land as digital analysts or social media developers. They will also be equipped to enter a PhD programme in information studies or a similar field.
