Technology, Media, and Communications
For those interested in digital technology and writing skills as well as internet governance, communication, and the role of the media in advocacy, development, and human rights.
The TMaC specialization is for students with a particular interest in writing and communication who want practical skills to equip themselves for careers in today’s digital workplace. Our goal is to help students develop strong abilities in video, data visualization, reporting/research, and writing, as well as an understanding of the global media and digital technology. We offer courses on the role of internet governance, digital activism, e-government, and digital diplomacy.
Digital technologies have transformed all the areas that SIPA students care about, including advocacy, media, and internet policy. The TMaC specialization is suitable for students in all concentrations, especially those who want to become better writers and learn practical skills (such as video and data visualization) to help them work in development, communications policymaking, media, journalism, human rights, business, or government.
