||The programme offers an introduction into how digital tools and methods can be used in research and it combines innovative elements of theory and practice in digital cultures. Students will receive instruction in how digital tools can be used to capture social and cultural data sources in digital form, using standards-based tools to frame research questions, collaborate on research using social networking tools, and present results both in print and on the web using current standards-based presentation technologies. Students will be encouraged to and facilitated in the creation of digital artefacts individually and in teams. International engagement and participation is expected and encouraged. The MA in Digital Cultures is geared towards introducing graduates to the use of appropriate digital tools to address research questions in their undergraduate disciplines or areas of expertise. It lays the foundations for work on capturing, reading and writing sources in digital form, and using them for analytic and creative work.
