Technology, Coding & Society (TCS)

The Technology, Coding, and Society (TCS) major program focuses on the impact of technologies, including hardware, platform and associated software, on people and on society more generally. Students learn essential computer coding skills, are taught theories on the use of digital platforms from humanistic and social science perspectives, learn to analyze the data that digital platforms produce, and then apply these concepts through practical labs and through optional work-integrated learning opportunities. Since the TCS Major is within the Institute of Communication, Culture, Information and Technology (ICCIT), students can concurrently obtain a Professional Experience Certificate in Digital Media, Communication, and Technology from ICCIT.
