New MA course launching September 2019
We live in an age where almost everything of what we do is connected to data. Big data and datafication pose great opportunities but also risks for contemporary societies. This new MA course addresses, explores and creatively utilises this transformation. We place an emphasis on current and future technologies and practices such as algorithms, artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, data analytics and data mining, the Internet of Things, and others. This multidisciplinary course is the first of its kind in the UK in bringing together media / communication studies and computer science. It combines hands-on and applied approaches with theoretical learning and critical analysis. It will encourage collaboration, creative practice, group work and problem-based learning, with students applying tools and technologies to their own data challenges and projects, including from their existing professional or cultural, political, social and economic environments.
