Explore the impact of the Web on the digital economy and all aspects of human society, from the individual right through to national and global scales. Pioneered by Southampton in the UK and MIT in the US, Web Science analyses the Web at a systems level; on the one hand investigating the technical capabilities of its distributed information infrastructure whilst also scrutinising the public policy and social practices that have made it a transformative global phenomenon. This programme develops a multidisciplinary understanding of the Web in society and is open to graduates of Computer Science, IT, Social Sciences and the Humanities.
Semester one: Foundations of Web Science – Impact of Web on Society; Web Architecture (Web 1.0); Interdisciplinary Thinking; Research Methods for Assessing Technology.
Semester two: Further Web Science – Innovating and Evaluating Policy; Social Networks (Web 2.0); Semantic Web (Web 3.0); Computational Thinking; Innovation and Technology Transfer.
Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
