Data Science Expertise
The OII employs academic research and teaching staff with expertise spanning a wide range of interrelated social, economic, political, legal, industrial, technical and ethical issues of the Internet.
Our MSc in the Social Science of the Internet is offered to students interested in careers in the technology industry, consulting, government, non-profit organizations, or going on to further study, while our DPhil in Information, Communication and the Social Sciences allows students to develop an original research project under the supervision of faculty working at the cutting edge of Internet research.
Research: We have unprecedented access to a huge volume of rich social data, and are developing new theories, concepts and methods to analyse it.
Teaching: Our Masters and doctoral programmes bring students from all over the world, to work with our faculty at the cutting-edge of their fields.
Policy: We provide the empirical data and conceptual analysis that is so needed to design policy solutions to societal problems.
Our academic faculty and graduate students are drawn from many different disciplines: we believe this combined approach is essential to tackle society’s ‘big questions’. Together, we aim to positively shape the development of our digital world for the public good.
