Course summary

This programme draws together teaching and expertise from a wide range of disciplines to investigate the application of computational technologies to the arts, humanities and cultural heritage. We study the impact of the computational techniques on cultural heritage, museums, libraries, archives, digital culture and the information sector while developing skills that employers and students tell us are needed. Our students develop an advanced understanding of the digital resources, techniques and computational methods that are relevant to research and practice in the humanities, cultural heritage and information sectors. Core competencies include programming, XML, databases, internet technologies, digitisation and digital methodologies. Students receive both practical and theoretical training to develop a unique and critical skill set suitable for many types of employment or advanced study.

Careers

Cultural Heritage institutions, like museums, galleries, archives and libraries, and the sectors that intersect with them are increasingly aware of the need to provide and manage digital material and projects. So too, the creative and information industries are investing heavily in online content and new ways of questioning and interconnecting it. Our graduates develop a unique and agile skill set that combines technical skills with creative and critical thinking. Our graduates are well placed for careers in research, development, foresight and planning in many sectors of the fast growing digital field.

Employability

The MA/MSc in Digital Humanities is a unique and ground-breaking programme that gives students the skills that they and employers tell us are needed. In this truly interdisciplinary programme, with optional modules offered across UCL, our students receive an exceptional blend of practical and theoretical skills that are in great demand. Work experience gives our students the opportunity to put theory into practice and gain invaluable experience of the workplace in this fast-moving environment. As well as the practical and technical skills of programming and leveraging digital tools, they are equipped with a critical and analytical mindset. Our students are well positioned to go on to pursue careers that involve collaboration, innovation and creative thinking.

Optional qualifications

This degree is also available as a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate with fees set accordingly.
