Digital Sociology: A new MA/MSc Programme at Goldsmiths, University of London

This innovative one-year MA/MSc brings together the disciplines of sociology and computing to equip students for the analysis of digital social life. The programme combines practice-based technical skills with social methods and sociological thinking to enable graduates to play leading roles in the emerging field of digital sociology.

Digital Sociology offers a comprehensive training programme of advanced courses across the two leading departments of Sociology and Computing at Goldsmiths. It has been specifically designed to facilitate the integration of social research methods and sociological thinking with creative computing techniques and approaches. The programme includes a guaranteed internship and a major practical project supervised by leading experts in computing and social research. Its objective is to cross perceived digital and analogue divides in the study and elaboration of social life.

The MA/MSc Digital Sociology will start late September 2011. It is offered jointly by the Department of Sociology and Computing, and hosted by the Centre for Creative and Social Technology (CAST).

There is no official deadline for applications. We accept a maximum of 20 students on the MA/MSc programme and will continue to accept applications until the course is full.
