What is digital culture?
Digital culture is designed to train the next generation of digital creatives to master cutting-edge tools, engage in critical reflection of these tools and discuss their impact on our lived experience.
Traditionally, when picking a program, students are forced to choose between creative and technical fields. However, we wanted to break the mold and help fill the growing demand for employees who are both creative and technical, which is why we created our digital culture program. This program focuses on fostering a new kind of digital fluency in our students – not only proficiency with design, tools and code, but also the ability to adapt to the rapidly flowing river of change associated with 21st century culture.
