Cyberspace and Society provides students with an understanding of the underlying principles of technologies that have an impact on their lives and integrates those principles with real-world activities. Class lectures incorporating a myriad of digital technologies including computer hardware, readings, labs and student discussions will be utilitzed to integrate the application of technology and the impact facing society.

Cyberspace technology empowers us to do more, but it also has a societal impact. It raises new questions regarding the use and misuse of information obtained from the Internet. For example, what is the impact of the Internet on intellectual property? How far can computer surveillance go to detect criminal behavior without reducing our civil liberties? How can vulnerable groups be protected from predators, scam artists, and identity theft? Does privacy even exist anymore? You will develop an understanding of the technologies behind the Internet, the web and your computer, and then use this knowledge to evaluate the social and ethical implications of this technology.
