Announcing the new MA/MSc in Digital Humanities at UCL

By Melissa M Terras, on 30 July 2010

UCL Centre for Digital Humanities are pleased to announce the establishment of our new Masters program in Digital Humanities at UCL, to begin in September 2011. It will be a truly interdisciplinary programme, creating linkages between teaching in the UCL Department of Information Studies and UCL Computer Science, and drawing upon modules offered in different parts of the UCL faculties of Arts and Humanities, Social and Historical Sciences, Engineering Science and the Bartlett Faculty of the Built Environment. The program will also depend on facilities offered by UCL Library Services, notably Special Collections, and of UCL Museums and Collections, whilst liaising closely with a variety of world-class, London based libraries, archives and museum within the vicinity of UCL.

The MA/MSc will provide research-led teaching delivered by leading scholars in these areas, and will include a dissertation/project and placement where students will work on a practical application of digital humanities, either at UCL or in partner institutions. It will allow students who have a background in the humanities to acquire necessarily skills in digital technologies, and will also make it possible for those with a technical background to become for informed about scholarly methods in the humanities.

More information regarding the Masters degree will be available soon. In the meantime, to register your interest contact the Course Director, Dr Melissa Terras, at m.terras@ucl.ac.uk.
