Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary field of study located at the intersection of humanities scholarship and computational technologies. Its key purpose is to investigate how digital methodologies can be used to enhance and transform research in the Arts and Social Sciences. It also employs traditional humanistic skills to analyse modern digital artefacts and to scrutinise contemporary digital culture.
By studying Digital Humanities students develop a broad understanding of the historical, cultural, and social aspects of current digital humanities research. It thus addresses the growing demand for graduates well-versed in a combination of humanistic and digital skills and able to work in a variety of professional environments, from cultural and memory institutions, to the emerging job markets of information management and online content delivery.
