The primary goals of the Center for the Digital Globe (CDiG) include interdisciplinary research, teaching and service to Missouri businesses. We also collaborate on research, teaching and service at the national and international levels.
Our initial priority was the creation and implementation of a certificate program at the master's and professional levels on digitization and globalization of technology. We now offer a 12 semester hour certificate program for both professional degree seeking students and graduate degree seeking students. Requirements for both graduate level certificate programs are outlined on our Graduate Certificates page. Our required introductory and capstone courses for graduate certificate students, Management 8100 Exploring the Digital Globe (3 Semester Hrs) (offered fall semesters) and Journalism 8052 Case Studies in the Digital Globe (3 Semester Hrs) (offered fall and winter semesters), give students a great opportunity to get to know professors and students outside of their departments and to share common interests, networks and connections. Students also work closely with their advisor to select the additional courses needed to complete their certificate program.
In addition to our graduate level certificate program, we are offering a new undergraduate level 15 credit-hour project-oriented interdisciplinary certificate program in digital global studies, the MU Global Connect Undergraduate Certificate Program. Details on this new program are outlined on the MU Global Connect Undergraduate Certificate Program web site: http://cdig.missouri.edu/globalconnect.
Future benchmarks for the Center include continued work with the Transatlantic Center, grants, research and service.
The Center is also a tool for communication. Our CDiG web site was designed and launched in 2006 as a source of knowledge, news, technology trends, marketing, business startup and new developments in many areas. Our site is designed for students, faculty, entrepreneurs, businesses and anyone seeking information on various fields of study. See our Resources and News pages for links to current news and information on various topics.
The Center for the Digital Globe (CDiG) is an interdisciplinary center that focuses its research, teaching and conferences on the topics of globalization, e-commerce and digitization. At the foundation of the Center’s goals and its mission is the desire to serve the people of Missouri.
