Digital Humanities (Advanced Certificate)

Department Website

Program Description

The Advanced Certificate in Digital Humanities trains students across the boundary between digital tools and critical insights, seeking to foster research skills that fuse computational methods and critical theory. Students learn the fundamentals of programming alongside the history and theory of digital technologies, as well as techniques for the analysis and structuring of data, and of publishing on the modern web. Students learn to advance academic knowledge in their own disciplines, and to build transferable skills for carrying that knowledge into their future careers.

The Advanced Certificate is also available as part of a dual degree with some GSAS MA and PhD humanities and social science programs. Please check specific department information in this bulletin or on departmental web sites to see if a specific program is eligible to be paired as a dual-degree with the Advanced Certificate
