Course summary

Combine abstract concepts of ethics and rights with practical approaches to managing and solving problems of data privacy. At York, you'll be taught by academics who are active in their fields and working with external partners, so you'll be up to date with the latest research and innovations. Engage in research-led enquiry, exploring the ways in which data is collected, used, and at times, exploited, by different organisations. Your studies will give you a sound practical and theoretical grasp of how user data is collected, analysed and stored, and the normative principles underpinning these different stages. You'll engage in problem-based learning as part of a team. You'll write reports on managing data privacy under the oversight of a specialist, as well as undertake an extended dissertation on a topic of your choosing. You'll graduate with a firm, broad grounding in the fast-growing, interdisciplinary field of the philosophy of data privacy.
