New digital technologies have become part of our lives in ways and with depths that would have been difficult to imagine two decades ago. The Digital Society MSc aims to respond to the needs of this fast-changing environment, by preparing social scientists who can critically and effectively engage with the realities and challenges of the digital era.

WHY THIS PROGRAMME

This Masters programme in Digital Society introduces students to the examination of how digital technologies permeate different aspects of social life, and how they become interconnected with the self, social relations, education, work and labour markets, cultural and institutional transformations, commerce and finance, health, security and a variety of other areas of social world. The programme will familiarise students with current debates informed by sociological theory and methodology, but also interdisciplinary approaches aimed at grasping the continuously deepening influence of digital technologies on our lives.

  • This programme offers a set of core courses which consider the study of digital society in a comprehensive way which includes: theoretical understandings of digitalisation, methodological training and practical engagement with/investigation of socio-technical contexts.
  • It enriches the students’ analytical capacity and develops their abilities to design and conduct research on topics related to digitalisation and to work with data collected and/or analysed through digital tools.
  • This programme covers different substantive areas which are shaped by digital technologies, enabling you to focus in depth on certain topics or social fields which interest you (for example: digitalisation in culture, education, organisational contexts and interpersonal communication).
  • It provides innovative and wide-ranging learning and teaching approaches from lectures and seminars, to project work, and field-based activities.
  • The programme is taught by a team of specialists in sociology (The Sociology Subject Area) and draws on the expertise of interdisciplinary scholars in the field of digitalisation (The Glasgow Social and Digital Change Group).

CAREER PROSPECTS

As students in this programme, you will gain a deep understanding of the ways in which technology is socially constructed, as well as how it shapes the practices of social actors, power relations and organisational structure. At the same time, you will have the chance to work hands on with novel technology in the Living Lab, both at the UOG’s smart campus and in industry-based internships. This is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourselves in environments strongly shaped by digitalisation, and to conduct research into socio-technical phenomena observed in these environments.

On completion of this programme, you will be equipped to apply your learning to a wide range of opportunities within the labour market.

The knowledge and skills acquired in this MSc programme will place you in a favourable position to inform policy debate, but also to work in non-technical project management within the IT sector or other industries, in public administration, in commerce and tourism, in NGOs and community building, in digital marketing and advertising, in digital media offices.
