Students in the Digital Media Module explore the use, design, and implications of digital communication and information technologies. Module courses cover topics such as how people learn, work, play, organize, and otherwise interact in digital environments, as well as the social, political, cultural, psychological and economic effects of digital media. Students in the module also gain relevant experience through research and internship opportunities. The module experience culminates with a capstone project designed to draw out connections between theoretical foundations learned in the classroom and practical work conducted throughout the student’s undergraduate career.
