Students & Researchers

Students who want to start a university programme in Digital Humanities or want to do a student exchange and study one semester abroad can find information about the programmes and courses offered in various places and institutions. Students can browse the collection of courses and programs without registering.

Decision makers and researchers who need numbers in order to decide, if they are going to fund DH activities can also find valuable information about DH teaching activities for particular disciplines or specific regions.
They all do not need an account.

The registry is designed to have all course meta data actively maintained by the data contributors themselves. This way, we ensure to only show useful and up to date content. The most recently added or reviewed courses will appear first in the listing and have a green flag. Links to external course information pages and curricula are regularly checked by the system, errors are reported to the maintainers automatically. Records not maintained for a certain period of time will be flagged yellow, then red and are finally removed from the list.

The DH Course Registry is a joint effort of two European research infrastructures (ERICs), CLARIN ERIC and DARIAH-EU. In the future, it will be further developed and maintained as a collaboration of the two ERICs. The Course Registry started as a selection of DH courses offered by European academic organizations. An extension of the registry content beyond Europe is currently underway. Students, lecturers and researchers can search the database based on disciplines, topographical information (location), ECTS credits or the academic degrees awarded. In addition, courses can be searched for using TaDiRAH, a Taxonomy of Digital Research Activities in the Humanities (including labels for techniques and objects) and sub-disciplines from the Social Sciences and the Humanities.

Introductory Video Lectures

The following videos give a short introduction to the Digital Humanities Course Registry.

The first one provides an overview of the intention of the registry and the institutions involved, while the second expands on the data model and how to find content. Courses in the registry are tagged by country, city, institution, targeted reward and discipline. In addition, the course data is also tagged using the TaDiRah categories of objects and techniques, which have been agreed upon to classify activities in the digital humanities.
