Course Overview

How is your life shaped by digital technologies? How can new technologies be used creatively? How can they be used to help us better understand the world, and create and share our knowledge? These are questions the new BA Digital Arts and Technology programme will be asking, and helping you to answer. The programme allows you to pursue an interest in arts and humanities (you will complete a full programme in an Arts subject), combined with a training in relevant aspects of information technology and data science.

You will study the impact of digital technologies from historical, literary, ethical and cultural points of view, and you also gain up-to-date skills in the creative and professional use of digital technologies, such as coding, database construction, web design, and digital content creation. Placements will be arranged in Year 3 of the programme, which will involve either work placements in appropriate companies/cultural institutions, or international study abroad, or a combination of both. The aim of the year is to add to your practical skills, expand your personal networks and enhance your employability.

Glossary of Terms

Credits
You must earn a defined number of credits (aka ECTS) to complete each year of your course. You do this by taking all of its required modules as well as the correct number of optional modules to obtain that year's total number of credits.
Module
An examinable portion of a subject or course, for which you attend lectures and/or tutorials and carry out assignments. E.g. Algebra and Calculus could be modules within the subject Mathematics. Each module has a unique module code eg. MA140.
Subject
Some courses allow you to choose subjects, where related modules are grouped together. Subjects have their own required number of credits, so you must take all that subject's required modules and may also need to obtain the remainder of the subject's total credits by choosing from its available optional modules.
Optional
A module you may choose to study.
Required
A module that you must study if you choose this course (or subject).
Required Core Subject
A subject you must study because it's integral to that course.
Semester
Most courses have 2 semesters (aka terms) per year, so a three-year course will have six semesters in total. For clarity, this page will refer to the first semester of year 2 as 'Semester 3'.
