Do you have a humanities background and an interest in learning more about digital media? Do you want to know how to improve your skills using digital tools? Have you considered how digital technologies impact culture, society, research and our everyday life? The Master’s Programme in Digital Humanities at Uppsala University offers the opportunity to augment your humanities studies with highly sought after technical skills and knowledge about the digital era.
WHY THIS PROGRAMME?
Over the past few decades, new digital tools have emerged that are now used within a range of humanities disciplines. The Master’s Programme in Digital Humanities provides a solid grasp of how powerful digital tools can be used to analyse, visualise and research digital media and digitised materials. You will also learn to digitise and process different types of texts and images and how these can be made available at cultural heritage institutions and in other contexts. The programme is multidisciplinary and driven by humanistic inquiry and curiosity. Key themes are the critical evaluation of digital technologies and their use in a number of areas, including knowledge production and cultural heritage.
There is now a great demand from the cultural sector for staff with knowledge of digital humanities and this programmes opens up opportunities for national or international careers in a variety of professions. You will be able to work within cultural heritage, digitisation and cultural and information services. Another opportunity is development and investigative work requiring a humanities background and technical skills. The programme also provides a good foundation for doctoral studies in several disciplines if you want to pursue a career in research.
