This course is suitable for people who are interested in music and want to learn how to work with music and social media and are interested in the scientific aspects. The course offers an overview of the social media landscape with special focus on the utilisation of music. How has the consumption and the distribution of music changed in the 20th century, and what impact do social media have? Throughout the course students will also conduct laboratory studies and make their own musical material which may be used in social media.
To study on a distance education will give you different opportunities than on-campus teaching. It means that, to a large extent, you will be able to plan your studies yourself, both in terms of time and place.
However, keep in mind that most distance education includes a number of compulsory digital lectures and digital seminars during the weekdays. Some distance education also include compulsory get-togethers, for which you will have to travel to Växjö or Kalmar.
There are a number of different ways to be a distance student, the common denominator being that a large part of your study work is carried out on the web. You communicate with the teacher and your fellow students using a learning platform with discussion forums, group work, recorded lectures or video meetings using a web cam.
