Information Technology and Communications have a widely recognized central role in the economic and social development of our societies.  One of the central problems of today's Information Society is the gap between the fast evolution of technology and the slower pace of production of new content for the emerging media.

The programme centres on the perceived need of a new type of professional profile: a "frontier actor" capable of bridging the vast repository of content provided by Humanistic Knowledge, specially History and Cultural Heritage Studies, with the new possibilities opened by the new media: Internet sites, Digital Repositories, Computer Games, Historical-Geographic Information Systems, etc...

This new type of professional brings a dual awareness of the Humanistic and Technological components of digital content production together with a high level of carefully chosen generic competences in the areas of project management, organization, capacity of dealing with complex information and specially tuned communication skills.
