About Digital Social Science at United International College (Beijing Normal University - Hong Kong Baptist University)

The Digital Social Science programme studies the new digital connections between society, culture, and technology. The unprecedented development of digital technology is transforming social and human sciences, communication, health and social care, community life, and commerce. New digital connections raise economic, social and cultural challenges and opportunities for the next generation of leaders.

The mission of the programme is to develop students’ competencies in creating, compiling, collating, interpreting, presenting, and critiquing digital data across a range of key social scientific and humanities disciplines. By developing such competencies in digital literacy, the programme aims to inspire students to discover and develop their talents for lifelong learning and leadership in the rapidly emerging digital world.

To develop such competencies, the principal aim of the programme is to provide students with an interdisciplinary training in digital literacies as they are applied to core fields of sociology, anthropology, digital humanities, social policy, social welfare, urban development, information sciences, big data and media and cultural studies. Students will have the option of extending from these core disciplinary areas to selected further areas of educational policy, advertising, communication studies, space humanities, cultural management, artificial intelligence, internet of things and smart cities. The programme thus blends a strong technical component with critical skills, professional knowledge and opportunities for research within a broad liberal arts ethos.

    Ana Cristina Rios Powell From Panama — Cinema and Television programme

    I am a degree-seeking student who will be majoring in Cinema and Television. Not too long ago, I was looking for a university to pursue my dream career while studying overseas and luckily for me, I found UIC. Since the very moment I reached out to them, I instantly realized they were the one. UIC staff has been nothing more than helpful and friendly professionals. I chose UIC not only because of their treatment but also for the amazing opportunities the university has to offer and its amazing campus. I cannot wait to experience life on campus very soon and meet everyone.
