The Digital Cultures programme at National University of Ireland, Galway is interdisciplinary and will allow students to follow ‘research-focused’ or ‘practice-focused’ streams, provided through a menu of core and optional modules. The programme offers a combination of themes and skills unique among Irish third-level institutions. For some graduates the programme will provide a stepping stone to a PhD project; for others it will provide a foundational skill-set for employment in the fields of ICT, cultural heritage, and the creative arts.
Career OpportunitiesGraduates will be able to follow employment opportunities where a combination of high level of information technology skills may be required in conjunction with core humanities skills in communication, analysis, research and creativity. This includes areas such as information and communication technologies; creative arts; cultural heritage; media; teaching and further research.
