The Masters degree in Digital Humanities at UCL draws together teaching from a wide range of disciplines, to investigate the application of computational technologies to the arts, humanities, and cultural heritage sectors. Attached are a poster and a brochure highlighting the features of the degree and the range of disciplines included in the programme; we would appreciate if you could please post and circulate these as appropriate.
The strength of our programme is that it will allow students who have a background in the humanities to acquire necessary skills in digital technologies, and will also make it possible for those with a technical background to become informed about scholarly methods in the humanities. In addition to their studies, the students will undertake a work placement, which will provide them with knowledge and hands-on experience in the field of Digital Humanities, and a skill set relevant to the cultural and heritage industry, publishing, and beyond.
This programme is by definition and purpose multi-disciplinary and aims to build and enhance on existing UCL resources. The students will have the opportunity to access not only UCL departments, library services, museums and collections, but also the numerous museums, galleries,libraries and archives based in close proximity to UCL in London.
Having drawn your attention to the programme, we would kindly ask you to share this news with anyone you think may be interested, such as potential students, librarians, and those interested in digital
technologies. Applications are now open for our new MA/MSc in Digital
Humanities for September 2011 entry.
