Description:

The CTS major offers students in the College of Arts a unique and flexible program of study with which to explore the role of culture and creativity in an increasingly technological world, using technologies themselves as part of the process. It emerges from the insight that technology is inextricably linked to human experience, culture, and society. Students in CTS will tackle the complex relationships among power, digital knowledge, digital cultures, the representation of data, and the ethical questions surrounding the development, deployment, and accessibility of technological objects and processes. CTS builds an understanding of the digital mediation of cultural processes and the role humans play in technological work. CTS majors learn digital methods for intervening in the contemporary world as versatile creators, curators, communicators, and citizens.

The CTS Co-op program provides an integrated academic/work experience for students with co-operating employer organizations. Students in the program complete 3-4 work terms while fulfilling the requirements of their CTS major.
