Digital Cultures is an innovative interdisciplinary program within the Department of Media and Communications. It critically investigates the internet, new media and digital technologies and the roles they play in contemporary society, media, culture, business, politics, the arts and everyday life. The Digital Cultures program places intelligent, interactive, mobile and networked technologies in context, taking an interdisciplinary approach that draws on sociology, history, philosophy, media studies, cultural studies and new media studies to understand the dramatic changes emerging as digital media proliferate.
At the undergraduate level, the Digital Cultures Program offers a major in Digital Cultures and an Honours Program that allows students to undertake a research project and become an expert in a recent development in digital media. At the postgraduate level we offer coursework programs in Digital Communication and Culture as well as higher research degrees from MA (Research) to PhD.
