Curtin University

Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
Level: Postgraduate
CRICOS: 00301J

The Master of Digital and Social Media provides you with an opportunity to learn in detail about the human dimensions of the Internet: how people network, collaborate, and share information through digital and social media. You will develop advanced skills in creating, maintaining and managing online communications for personal and commercial interactions, as well as gaining knowledge of the social and cultural contexts within which those interactions occur. You will also gain advanced research skills through a substantial independent research project. The approach is interdisciplinary: you develop skills in websites, public communication, social network management, collaboration via virtual organisations, and web media production. At the same time you will understand the political, economic and social changes associated with the Internet. By taking this course, you will add to your existing qualification the knowledge and skills needed for you to become an astute, engaged professional communicator via the Internet.
