Choose this course if you're interested in learning about the methods and principles for managing and using cultural data.
Cultural data is digital data about human culture and society, past and present: from ancient documents, artefacts and environments to present-day social media, digital arts and virtual worlds. It draws on a similarly diverse range of digital and computational methods for its management, analysis and communication: from data standards, citizen science and web apps, to computational linguistics, machine learning and user-centred design.
The course will give you a grounding in digital and computational approaches to cultural data. It is intended to prepare students for leadership roles, including project and product management, and careers involving cultural data: leading, overseeing and intersecting with clients, audiences, and design teams (for example programmers and artists ). You don't need to have programming or mathematical competencies.
