Digital Studies

Digital Studies is the critical analysis of the contemporary technologies that shape how we work, play, communicate, love, learn, and even sleep. Understanding the social and historical contexts of these technologies is also a fundamental part of Digital Studies.

Digital Studies courses range across three broad areas:

  • Digital creativity, which includes digital art and digital narrative;
  • Digital culture, which focuses on the communities, practices, and counter-practices that modern technology has given rise to; and
  • Digital methodology, in which digital tools are used to quantitatively or qualitatively analyze, map, and share text or data.

Combining theory and practice, Digital Studies courses foster expertise essential for the 21st century: procedural literacy, data awareness, network sensibility, entrepreneurial thinking, iterative design, digital citizenship, information preservation and sustainability, and the ethical use of technology.
