Webinar: Study BA (Hons) Digital Media and Society at the University of Sheffield
How do apps, platforms and devices change our social world?
What happens to the information we share on social media?
What does the ‘selfie’ explosion tell us about identity and representation?
These are some of the issues that are addressed on the BA (Hons) Digital Media and Society at the University of Sheffield. The course is unique in offering students the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the relationship between digital media and society.
Students learn how to make digital media products (such as websites and animations) that focus on the needs of the user, and how to use innovative digital methods to research digital media in society. Students also study the human consequences of digital media developments, the ways in which social factors shape these developments and the various domains in which digital media are developed, used and have an impact.
The BA Digital Media and Society brings together modules from other departments in the Faculty of Social Sciences, offering students the opportunity to study digital media developments in relation to a range of fields, like education, marketing or journalism.
