This subject examines how data and algorithmic processes have impacted our everyday lives and establishes basic data and code literacy for students. Students examine how contemporary code formations are positioned in historical and theoretical contexts and are reflexively explored as languages through which humans and machines communicate with each other. Students form a personal perspective on code as a digital form of reading and writing that evolves throughout their professional lives as digital and social media practitioners and articulate this perspective in a digital media form.
