GSA says that the four-year Digital Culture programme will give students an ‘understanding of the digital world and an advanced ability in digital tool usage to create attention-grabbing content, products and artefacts for different digital platforms’.
Students will learn these skills though studio practice, project-based learning and critical debate. Work produced on the course will include prototypes, simulations, interactives, animation, video and imagery.
The course is structured around three study areas – Computation, Connectivity and Content – which will be taught as discrete units as well as being integrated into the studio aspect of the course to reflect their relationships in digital culture.
Students on the Digital Culture course will also be expected to become familiar with the context, discussion and practice associated with digital culture in architecture, art and design through an interdisciplinary approach across other courses run by GSA.
