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 gain an understanding of how humanities research is applied in broader society and are supported to develop communication skills across traditional and digital platforms aimed at both the academic and public spheres. 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 at the ANU.

Applications for the Semester 1, 2024 are now open.

Hear from our students

The support of my lecturers helped me get out of my comfort zone. I realised that the more I explored things, the more I was open to accepting new things. And that helped me find who I am and the real me.
