Web Science? Check out the Master’s in Web Science Opportunity at Southampton University in the UK

The University of Southampton is pioneering the development of Web Science, a new discipline that aims to provide a thorough understanding of the Web as a social and technical phenomenon. This demands new ways of working, across traditional academic disciplines, to build skills and expertise in the technical underpinnings of the Web as well as the social processes that have shaped its evolution and the impact of the Web on society. The University’s MSc in Web Science uses multidisciplinary techniques to explore the impact of the web on all aspects of human society, from the individual right through to national and global scales.
