Information and Culture Studies



Studying the progress and diversity of information media from the cultural viewpoint

The evolution of communication media in the 21st century, in particular the advancement and generalization of contemporary information technology, is causing changes in various fields and even influencing how we think and act. In that sense, the study of intellectual and cultural activities of people today requires a new point of view, that of "information culture" based on the existing framework of cultural studies. This major has a unique educational and research structure that integrates the two approaches of "media culture" and "expressive culture" to address such contemporary issues.
