Dear Colleagues,

Thanks in advance for distributing this information to those who might be
interested in attending our new MA program in "Digital Living" at Aarhus
University, as part of the Department of Aesthetics & Communication within
the Faculty of Arts.


Are you interested in how digital technologies are used in everyday life?
Do you care how technologies impact social and work life? Would you like to
learn how to design better futures by exploring the intersection of
networked sociality, organizational practices, and IT design?

If so, you might be interested in a new international master's degree
program at Aarhus University: "Digital Living: Work and Social Life in an
Era of Smart Machines and Social Media."  Curriculum taught in English. Learn
more here:  http://arts.au.dk/digitalliving

This MA focuses on how digital technologies are used in everyday life and
offers students the opportunity to consider how we might design better
futures by exploring the intersection of networked sociality,
organizational practices, and IT design.

Discuss cutting edge knowledge about the social impact of digital
technologies with internationally established professors. Learn from
computer scientists how digital forms of communication and interaction are
designed and programmed. Work with professors from information and media
studies to build a strong grounding in the political, social, and economic
structures of 21st Century organizations and institutions.

In addition to theoretically-grounded classroom discussions, students
design and build interfaces, engage in empirical studies of digital
contexts, and explore how new eBusiness models work. This well-rounded
master's program provides solid grounding for analyzing contemporary social
media practices and developing sustainable and ethical digital futures.

Digital living is an interdisciplinary Master Program within Information
Studies at Aarhus University.  Curriculum taught in English.
