The Master of Digital Humanities and Public Culture enables students to develop high-level skills in digital literacy and applied humanities. Our flexible structure allows students to learn emerging digital research methods, advanced critical thinking and data analysis.

Students will collaborate with researchers from across the ANU, and have  the opportunity to engage with the national cultural institutions, the public and government sector, and international organisations in Canberra. 

The Master of Digital Humanities and Public Culture allows students to develop their professional expertise by drawing on the experience of our world-leading staff and strong industry connections and partnerships. With some of Australia’s leading scholars and innovators in public culture and humanities and digital humanities, a new Digital Humanities Lab with high-performance computers, 3D scanners and VR capabilities, the national cultural institutions and archives at your fingertips, there’s no better place to study digital humanities and public culture than ANU.
