About Digital Media and Society at University of Sheffield

What happens to the information we share on social media? How do apps, platforms and devices change our social world?

These are some of the issues that you will address on the BA Digital Media and Society. It is unique in offering you the opportunity to develop a broad understanding of the relationship between digital media and society. You will also learn how to make digital media products (such as websites and animations) that focus on the needs of the user and to use innovative digital methods to research digital media in society.

You will study the human consequences of digital media developments, the ways in which social factors shape these developments and the various domains in which digital media are developed, used and have an impact.

There is an opportunity to undertake a work placement in the final year of the course.

As a Digital Media and Society graduate you could find yourself working within digital media organisations, agencies or games companies, working in roles such as UX (User Experience Design), usability studies or user research. Alternatively, you could choose a career in marketing, communications and PR, for example working as a digital media manager or social media account manager for a local or city council, in a museum or theatre, or working for a charitable organisation.
