You will better understand the history of the digital revolution and the impact of digitalisation on today's society, culture & politics so that you can shape the digital transformations of tomorrow
We are living in an increasingly digital world. Every aspect of our lives is now affected by digital technologies, from how we communicate and socialise to how we work, learn, create, stay healthy and participate in politics and the economy. The three-year Digital Society bachelor's programme will provide you with the knowledge and skills to understand the relationships between digitalisation and social change.

In this interdisciplinary programme, you will learn to look at the digital society from a wide variety of perspectives by combining theories and methodologies from disciplines such as: media & culture studies, arts & literature, history, philosophy, political science, sociology, science & technology studies and computer, data & information science.

Digitalisation promises tremendous benefits, but it also presents challenges. In this programme, you will explore both the advantages and disadvantages of digitalisation. You will learn to critically assess, anticipate and shape the social, cultural and political effects of digital transformations. And you will also be capable of understanding the range of possible future implications of emerging digital transformations.
