Georgia Institute of Technology (School of Literature, Communication, and Culture (LCC))

The interdisciplinary Science, Technology, and Culture (STAC) degree, located in the School of Literature, Communication, and Culture (LCC), gives students the opportunity to explore all aspects of culture, with particular emphasis on literary, scientific, and technological culture. Unlike programs that look at science, technology, and the humanities as separate entities, STAC examines how their interaction shapes particular cultures. For students interested in specializing in film and new media studies, STAC has a Media Studies track that emphasizes these areas.

The Master of Science in Digital Media program at Georgia Tech (formerly known as Information Design and Technology) offers arts and humanities based advanced study in digital media design and critique. Its faculty includes leading theorists and practitioners who approach the design of digital artifacts as a defining creative and intellectual challenge of the 21st century, comparable in its cultural complexity and historical importance to the inventions of the book, the photograph and the moving image. The diverse student body brings a wide range of cultural and disciplinary backgrounds to a studio and seminar based curriculum which prepares them for leadership positions as designers, producers and critical analysts in a changing digital culture.

The Georgia Tech Digital Media Ph.D. provides both the theoretical and the practical foundation for careers as digital media researchers in academia and industry.The advent of a new medium of human communication and representation is a significant event in human social and cultural history, and introduces the possibility of new genres of artistic expression as well as new forms of information and knowledge transmission. The study of these new forms – from the point of view of the creators and the analysts – is an emerging field, one that requires a convergence of the methodologies of several traditional disciplines, and one that is also defining its own methodologies of research and practice.
