WHY STUDY AT CIM?

Not many problems fit neatly into a single theoretical or methodological approach. Our unique interdisciplinary environment prepares you to respond creatively and critically to the rapidly evolving challenges of a world transformed by digital processes.

CIM’s postgraduate degrees open the doors to a variety of emerging career paths by equipping you with a suite of skills and knowledge across data analysis and digital media. You'll gain a toolbox of key research techniques and concepts to answer key questions and challenges like:

  • How can we use digital data to understand and shape smart cities?
  • What is the best way to study and understand a major event on social media?
  • How are user interfaces designed to influence behavior?
  • What can we learn from new mapping techniques using smartphones?
  • Why is play so important for digital culture?
  • How do we create and critique data visualisations?

CIM offers a small, friendly and focused experience. You'll have direct and regular access to staff and our weekly drop-in computer lab sessions, giving you the opportunities to develop and strengthen your practical skills. You will also develop leadership and team-building skills working together on group projects and tasks. Courses can be tailored to individual research interests through a range of optional modules.
