We’d like to invite you to pursue further study with us. The University of Southampton offers Web Science Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses.

Web Science bachelors degrees allow students to specialise in either the computer science (technology) of the Web or the social science of the Web. There are two pathways:

Our pioneering one-year MSc in Web Science analyses the Web at a systems level; on the one hand investigating the technical capabilities of its distributed information infrastructure whilst also scrutinising the public policy and social practices that have made it a transformative global phenomenon.

Our four-year Integrated PhD in Web Science will equip students to become leaders in the Digital Economy. The programme begins with a one-year taught programme followed by a research programme considering the impact of the Web on society and involves input from industry and government partners.
