Graduate certificate: public digital humanities



The Certificate in Public Digital Humanities welcomes students with no prior training in the digital humanities. The certificate program offers credentials to graduate students who plan to incorporate digital technology into their future research, teaching, or careers. Students learn interdisciplinary ways of conceiving of their own and other's digital work, while exploring digital tools that underlie many humanistic and social scientific research projects. Students also learn important skills such as how to manage an original project, collaborate with digital humanities scholars and practitioners across different departments, programs, units, and centers, participate in teams, and communicate technical information to a nonspecialist audience.

The certificate provides crucial training and education for the 21st-century humanist interested in the intersection between technology and research.
