// MA Digital Media and Culture, Centre for Interdisciplinary
Methodologies (CIM) //

Digital media today affect all aspects of everyday, professional and
public life, and understanding their significance requires
interdisciplinary knowledge.

Based at the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM) at the
University of Warwick, the MA Programme in Digital Media and Culture
is an advanced one-year postgraduate degree that addresses the role of
digital technologies, media, and infrastructures in relation to
culture, economics, politics, and society.

Drawing on multiple disciplines, the degree supports critical
approaches to key topics in digital culture, including
platformisation, participatory culture, media activism, digital labour
and political economy, privacy and surveillance, behavioural design,
data critique, and environmental sustainability.

Our teaching combines theory, research methods, and creative practice.
By selecting from a diverse offering of modules, students will have,
for instance, the opportunity to learn data analytics and
visualisation, to engage with speculative design and media art, and to
discuss concepts in fields ranging from software studies to
environmental humanities.

Delivered by a research centre promoting cutting-edge scholarship in
these areas, our degree is primarily research-driven. MA students will
be encouraged to select their own path through the degree and
contribute to the culture of CIM by attending invited talks,
participating in workshops, and organising interdisciplinary
symposiums.

Teaching staff include: Nerea Calvillo, Michael Castelle, Michael
Dieter, Noortje Marres, Greg McInerny, María Puig de la Bellacasa,
Nathaniel Tkacz, Cagatay Turkay, Emma Uprichard and Naomi
Waltham-Smith.
