The Westminster School of Media and Communication and the School of Computer Science and Engineering welcome applications to its interdisciplinary MA programme in Data, Culture and Society.

We live in an age where almost everything of what we do is connected to data. Big data and datafication pose great opportunities but also risks for contemporary societies. This MA course addresses, explores and creatively utilises this transformation. We place an emphasis on current and future technologies and practices such as algorithms, artificial intelligence, big data, blockchain, data analytics and data mining, the Internet of Things, and others.

The programme is part of the School's Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI - https://camri.ac.uk/) which is home to around 30 researchers and 65 doctoral students. It has been a leading centre of media and communications research in the UK for almost 30 years. CAMRI is noted for its strong international dimension and its focus on critical media research, with interests in the study of digital and social media, the political economy of communications, global and transnational media, media policy studies, media and activism, and media history.
