VCU Launches Master’s Program in Digital Sociology

The first master’s degree program in digital sociology in the U.S. begins with seven online students on the 25th of this month (August) at VCU.

The program’s director, Dr. Tara Stamm, said the students, already working in sociology, will learn the tools needed to collect and analyze data from online sources like social media to explore inequality and social justice.

Digital sociology, she said, is the study of the social processes that shape technologies.
