Digital Humanities and Culture (M.Phil.)

1 year full-time

Course Description

Digital Humanities is a field of study, research, and invention at the intersection of humanities, computing, and information management. It is methodological by nature and multidisciplinary in scope involving the investigation, analysis, synthesis, and presentation of information in electronic form. The ever-evolving developments in computing and their performative and analytical capacity have created an environment for a quantum leap in humanities research and practice. The postgraduate programme in Digital Humanities and Culture provides the opportunity for students to engage in this new and dynamic area of research via the technologies, methodologies, and theories for digitally-mediated humanities

The programme can be accessed via three different entry routes, each of which offers distinct advantages. As a Postgraduate Certificate, students complete three courses (2 required, 1 elective) to develop a basic understanding of and fluency with the methods and contexts of the digital humanities. As a Postgraduate Diploma, students complete 6 courses (4 required, 2 elective) to obtain a thorough grounding in both the theory and the practice underpinning the digital humanities. Finally, as a Masters of Philosophy, students will have the opportunity to apply the learnings of their coursework through the development of a research dissertation.
