Digital Sociology: A new MA/MSc Programme at Goldsmiths, University of  

This innovative one-year MA/MSc brings together the disciplines of  
sociology and computing to equip students for the analysis of digital  
social life. 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.

Digital Sociology offers a comprehensive training programme of  
advanced courses across the two leading departments of Sociology and  
Computing at Goldsmiths. It has been specifically designed to  
facilitate the integration of social research methods and sociological  
thinking with creative computing techniques and approaches. The  
programme includes a guaranteed internship and a major practical  
project supervised by leading experts in computing and social  
research. Its objective is to cross perceived digital and analogue  
divides in the study and elaboration of social life.

The MA/MSc Digital Sociology will start late September 2011. It is  
offered jointly by the Department of Sociology and Computing, and  
hosted by the Centre for Creative and Social Technology (CAST).

There is no official deadline for applications. We accept a maximum of  
20 students on the MA/MSc programme and will continue to accept  
applications until the course is full.
