Description
The MSc in Spatial eHumanities is designed to provide both a historical background and theoretical grounding to the field while providing students with solid skills in contemporary digital methods and technologies. It employs blended learning strategies including, lectures, group discussions, projects (including group projects), and hands-on experimentation with software tools and methods. This programme also features an internship module (AFF611A: Digital Humanities Practicum) where students will spend the semester in a cultural institution, a private sector organisation or working on existing digital project to gain practical experience in the Spatial eHumanities. A feature of this degree is after the required core modules are taken in semester one, there will be two pathways available to students, with focus either on geocomputation or 3D modelling. Students who don’t register for the pre-semester structured programming module can register for both geocomputation and 3D modelling-related modules therefore getting a much broader specialisation in the field of Spatial eHumanities. For students who will decide to choose one of the two pathways – either geocomputation or 3D modelling – there will be the option to register for the AFF604A: Modelling Humanities Data that will provide some further specialisation on different types of models used in digital humanities projects.
