|Student Contribution Band:||Band 4|
|Administered by:||College of Arts, Society & Education|
Our lives are becoming increasingly intertwined with the digital, such that there is no longer a meaningful division between online and offline. Society is plugged into the "Internet of Things". In this subject, students will explore the relationships between humans and the digital world. Many predictions are made about the impacts of new technologies on social life. In this subject, students will engage with some of those and will look below the surface to assess the real relationship between people and technology. Sociology provides us with tools to understand these relationships, and students will leave the subject equipped with the ability to think critically about the technology that has become so commonplace.
