With support from Microsoft Ireland, UCD School of Information and Communication studies is establishing the Microsoft-UCD Digital Policy Programme with the goal of building digital policy training and capability in Ireland and Europe.
Designed to offer graduates the opportunity to study some of the core topical, theoretical, and methodological issues that arise when investigating the institutional and public policy dimensions of the prevalence of digital technology, digital infrastructure, and data production, capture, and analysis in all dimensions of life.
It will also allow students to study the underlying social conditions (economic, political, and cultural) that give rise to such technologies and their governance, as well as the multiple public sector and commercial contexts where policy is made and enacted.
Our new Communication and Media programmes are the first in Ireland to offer a broad degree in communication and media studies from an Information school perspective, where students can choose tracks to focus on Ethics & Policy, Design & Culture and Data Journalism.
Digital Information Management combines core elements of digital preservation and curation as well as area-specific tracks to prepare students for work in cultural institutions, civil service and higher education and in the private sector.
Information Systems studies focus on the design and deployment of human-centred computing and information systems, combining theory and practice-based perspectives from across a range of disciplines.
Our Library and Information Studies programmes have prepared generations of graduates for careers as information and library professionals.
