Optional modules

As part of the Department’s commitment to research-led teaching, optional modules are organized in clusters that closely reflect our research, which will help students get an overview of the general themes they can explore. The same module might appear in two or three different clusters, in keeping with the multi-disciplinary approach of the Department. 

Students on the MA Digital Asset & Media Management, MA Digital Culture & Society and MA Digital Humanities programmes may select up to two modules per cluster, and must select modules from at least three different clusters. 

Students on the MA Big Data, Culture & Society programme must select modules from two different clusters.

Students are advised to refer to abstract skills modules teach - a guide can be found here.

All optional modules are worth 20 credits.

 

Socio-technical Methods and Techniques (MT) (research theme: Digital Epistemology and Methods)

The Socio-technical Methods and Techniques Cluster groups together courses on digital methods and skills. The aim of all the courses is to equip you with practical and technical skills used to study different aspects of the digital humanities. This cluster includes a wide variety of approaches, from qualitative research to information organization to introductory technical skills in visualization, map- and app-making, and web technologies. You are encouraged to select courses that cover different and complementary approaches, in order to maximize the breadth of your training.

Semester 1

Semester 2

 

Data and Information Analysis (DIA) (research theme: Data Worlds)

In the Data and Information Analysis Cluster, you will find courses that will help you understand the world of data from a practical and theoretical perspective. Many of the courses include a technical component, but none of them require previous experience in programming. They will provide a solid foundation for working with technical teams in non-technical and managerial positions, as well as for further technical training.

Semester 1

Semester 2

 

Digital Productions (DP) (research themes: Digital Cultures Past and Present; Technology, Media and Participation)

Courses in the Digital Productions cluster provide a mix of theoretical and practical approaches to exploring critically how digital culture is produced, consumed, mixed, and circulated. The approaches presented in the different courses take specific domains as their starting point – from cultural heritage to politics to asset management – but their lessons are applicable across a variety of topics and disciplines.

Economy, Management & Marketing (EMM) (research theme: Digital Economy & Society)

The Economy, Management & Marketing Cluster will provide a variety of theoretical and practical frameworks to understand the unfolding digital economy.

Please note that data/content/information management courses are also listed under other clusters, particularly Data and Information Analysis and Digital Productions.

Semester 1

Theories and Practices of Digital Society (TPDS) (research theme: Digital Cultures Past and Present)

In Theories and Practices of Digital Society, you will find a broad selection of courses providing critical foundational grounding for understanding different aspects of the digital society. These courses represent an ideal complement to more practice-based modules, and will allow you to explore, from a research-based perspective, themes that are hotly debated in the public sphere. This courses will allow you to gain depth in your thematic area of interest.

Semester 1

Digital Media and Communications (DMC) (research theme: Technology, Media and Participation)

Digital media are the lynchpin of a digital society, and in this cluster you will find courses that address the relationship between the two. The emphasis of this cluster is on different facets of computer-mediated communication, approached from different domains and perspectives. The courses will allow you to gain depth in your thematic area of interest.
