Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
We offer courses that explore the importance, use, and social and cultural impact of the most important technology of the 21st century: the internet. You will learn essential skills in online communication, social media management and web media creation, to develop a deeper and richer understanding of how entire cultures have been changed by the internet - from the early internet to today's mobile web and apps. These courses are designed for you to acquire the particular skills and knowledge you want, depending on your current employment or personal interests. You will have the opportunity to focus on the specialist areas of communications and policy, content management, training and development. You'll also be able to investigate a range of ideas from music streaming to piracy, big data, apps, web play and online communities and identities. Digital and social media offers stackable courses, with completion of one level providing credit towards the next. You can therefore choose to exit the master degree at the graduate certificate or graduate diploma level. Students who complete the master degree to a high standard can apply for doctoral-level studies.
