Digital Culture majors learn to go beyond merely using digital tools; they develop the ability to program media and integrate computational systems with everyday physical human experience. Digital Culture's dynamic curriculum prepares students by outfitting them with tangible skills in cultural media, and equipping them with the critical thinking skills needed to understand the broader impact of technologies on culture and life.
Digital Culture explores how new media and technology can be used to impact our everyday lives.
Upon identifying a problem, students will utilize the tools of Digital Culture to innovate current practices to generate positive social impact. They will complete a comprehensive review of relevant literature and past work in the field. Finally, they are required to synthesize their research, develop a project which addresses their chosen problem, and perform testing and reviews of their project.
In addition to creating a unique project, students will prepare a formal thesis document. It should clearly describe the problem, research, methodology and design process, rationale, and document the project outcome. Simply put, the thesis should tell the story of the project.
Students should have completed all requisite classes and have a strong grounding in Digital Culture.
