The new MAMSc in Digital Sociology builds on Goldsmiths? leading position in creative research and analysis. The programme combines practice-based technical skills with social methods and sociological thinking to enable graduates to play leading roles in the emerging field of digital sociology. Graduates will learn to assess, use and develop new research instruments for the collection, analysis and presentation of social data in relation to sociological problems. The MAMSc in Digital Sociology is a collaborative programme taught across the Sociology and Computing Departments, and is based in the centre for Creative and Social Technology (CAST). As part of this new research centre, students will have access to state of the art facilities and emergent creative and social technologies. The MA in Digital Sociology enables students to develop the critical thinking, research skills and digital techniques that are crucial for cutting-edge social research. The MA teaches the practice-based technological skills and the sociological competencies required to become a Digital Sociologist who is able to create, analyse and interact with contemporary digital theory, methods and techniques. Students will become proficient in the intersections of: * Critical social theory and social research methods * Computing skills (coding, hardwaresoftware, data, digital methods) Employers are increasingly seeking multi-skilled professionals capable of developing lateral roles and taking on a diversity of responsibilities. Our Digital Sociology graduates will be well-suited for a number of professional careers in public, private and third sector organisations, as social researchers, project managers or other multi-skilled consultants, entrepreneurs or inventors. Those students planning an academic career will break new ground with their ability to integrate and innovate with offline and emergent digital research methods and innovative sociological thinking. What you study: The degree consists of courses taught by Sociology and Computing in an interdisciplinary and collaborative style. Current themes in social theory and social research methods introduced in the core sociology modules will be complemented in the computing modules, giving the students lots of opportunity to obtain creative computing and technical skills. Core courses in sociology introduce students to the conceptual and methodological issues opened up by the application of social methods in digital networked media. Students will choose one option course in the second term on topics such as information regulation and software cultures. Research methods will be taught jointly, integrating traditional and emergent digital methods that draw on best practices from both disciplines. Core computing modules include extensive time in the Digital Sandbox (lab) developing a capability and literacy in computer science, and engaging with current digital case studies from industry, public sector, civil society and academic experience. In the final practical project students will undertake a significant written and digital research project in consultation with a supervisor.
