Digital culture is the study of social, cultural, ethical and aesthetic aspects of information- and communication technology (ICT). Our main focus area lies within digital art and culture, and the interaction between culture and technology.

Studying Digital Culture will enable you to critically reflect on tech culture and the history of technology in addition to giving you hands on experience in webdesign and creative web projects. You'll learn about aesthetic modes of expression in digital media, such as electronic literature, digital arts and computer games.

Our bachelor-, master-, and PhD students research topics such as e-books, people's understanding of privacy, computer games in schools, kinetic poetry, digital methods in the humanities, the politics of Twitter, user interface in dating apps, surveillance, visual self-representation online, and haptic feedback.

Most of our students write theoretical and analytical papers. But some develop websites or software, or do creative projects for their bachelor or master thesis.
