About the course

The MA in Media, Data and Society is designed for you if you have an interest in the opportunities, yet risks, that emerge from the increasing use of digital data in our society.

With its critical and technical overview, the programme will provide you with an introduction to the approaches that are used for the collection, analysis, and storage of digital data, such as data mining and machine learning. It will also develop your critical skillset for understanding and questioning the political, economic, moral and implications of the use of digital data in contemporary society.
