The MA program, which began in 2011, is a 30-credit-hour interdisciplinary professional program with tracks designed to on-board and train humanities and computer science students. Both sets of students enroll in an introductory class on DH research methods, a course on human-computer interaction and design, and a textual criticism course offered by the English department. Possible electives include such departmental offerings as Social and Ethical Issues in Computing (Computer Science), Media and Culture (English), or Archives and Records Management (History). Students also participate in a Practicum course under a faculty member where they gain experience working on an existing DH project. In their final semesters, students work under faculty advisors to develop a digital capstone projectpast capstones have included the creation of a State of the Union database and a Spanish-language digital archive of Colombian newspaper reportage. The program is designed to be interdisciplinary and to encourage collaboration across departments, as well as to provide students with hands-on training that develop transferable skills to support them on the job market. Graduates of the program have gone into a variety of careers/further education: PhD programs, web development and software consulting, teaching, archives and museum work, and cultural heritage institutions. We accept applications on a rolling basis but offer a small number of partial fellowship awards (stipend + partial tuition remission and health insurance) to competitive early applicants. Please forward to any students who may be interested in pursuing a MA in Digital Humanities.
