The digital humanities graduate certificate welcomes students from all disciplines, including the humanities and arts, social sciences, natural sciences, computational and mathematical sciences, engineering, and communication, media and information science. The certificate prepares students to:
- create, utilize and evaluate digital methods and tools for research;
- integrate methods and tools into their teaching;
- assess the diverse impacts of technologies on people and society; and
- leverage digital technologies for public outreach and engagement.
Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, the certificate provides graduate students from across campus the opportunity to explore the evolution and variety of digital humanities theories and practices and to study approaches in the field in-depth. Moreover, the certificate is intended to stimulate collaborations among graduate students in a range of fields, thus preparing them for work in a team-based environment.
