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.
