HOD-836 Culture, Technology, and Social Change in the Digital Age

4 semester credits
Culture, technology, and social change issues in our digital age have become increasingly intertwined and complex. In order to understand the relationships and directions of today’s globally-connected societies, it will be important to examine those disruptions and interventions that have had significant impacts on societies.

Using a case study approach, this course will focus on controversial issues of power and resource distribution as well as the deep interior workings of the internet and social media, and how these affect our modern society.  Students will choose a particular topic of their choice to investigate how we are seeing phenomena and as a way of engaging with social reality.
