Ireland is the European headquarters for many multinational digital media companies, and with the development of big data and data warehousing we also see the emergence of a range of data ‘savvy’ roles (Expert Group on Future Skills and Forfás, 2014). There is a demand for digitally literate graduates who understand the social, cultural, political, legal and business aspects of transnational online users. Graduates of this course will be able to interface with programmers and designers and with those working on the deep statistical analysis of user data. They will be able to develop, execute and report on internet based research projects for a range of public and private sector employers.
