- Opportunity to study on a truly interdisciplinary programme.
- A month long work placement within a relevant organisation.
- Optional modules include field trips to the Tate Modern, Institute of Archaeology and the BBC Archives (please note that field trips are subject to change from year to year).
This interdisciplinary programme is offered jointly by the School of Humanities (including the Centre for Computing in the Humanities and the Film Studies Centre); the School of Social Science & Public Policy (including the Department of Education & Professional Studies); the School of Physical Sciences & Engineering (including the Division of Engineering); and the School of Law.
The programme begins with the basic engineering concepts of computing which will give you an expertise in digital technology (no prior knowledge assumed). You will then uncover the creative impact of the digital revolution in music, art, film and literature and consider the philosophical, political, ethical, legal and educational implications of digital culture. You may specialise in the engineering aspects of the programme or the socio/cultural side.
Programme format and assessment
The programme consists of a compulsory core module (30 credits), optional modules (which consider aspects of the core module in greater detail) to the value of 90 credits, and a supervised research project (60 credits). The taught core and optional modules are assessed by coursework and/or examination. One of the optional modules offered is a work placement (15 credits) in an organisation relevant to digital culture.
