Digital Societies
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)


Digital technologies shape the way people live together in society. The university Bachelor's programme Digital Society addresses digitalisation from a multidisciplinary perspective. How is society changing through digitalisation? How are culture, the public sphere, politics, the economy and work influenced by the use of digital technologies? How are media shaped by digital infrastructures and platforms? What are the ethical requirements for artificial intelligence, autonomous robots and other digital innovations? The degree programme enables students to deal with these questions in an interdisciplinary and well-founded manner.

Students learn to analyse and critically reflect on connections between digitalisation and society using scientific methods. Compulsory and elective modules in law and economics complement the programme profile with study content that is in high demand by many employers. The programme qualifies students for a Master's degree in the field of cultural and social sciences and prepares them to work as professionals in the media, business and civil society.
