Description
Our MA course in Digital Humanities brings digital theory and practice to the study of human culture: from history, English and music to museums, digital publishing and beyond. Digital technology provides many new opportunities and challenges to those working with textual, visual or multimedia content and this course studies the history and current state of the digital humanities, exploring their role in modelling, curating, analysing and interpreting digital representations of human culture in all its forms. This world-leading course is highly multidisciplinary and draws on a wide range of expertise in web technologies, digital publishing, open software and content creation, digital cultural heritage, coding in humanities/cultural contexts and maps, apps and the Geoweb. The course provides opportunities to scope, build and critique practical experiments in digital research with an arts, humanities and cultural sector focus. Through the optional internship module students can have direct access to some of the world’s most important culture and media institutions. The MA can lead to further research or to careers in cultural heritage institutions (such as museums, libraries, and archives), in multimedia and new media companies, in internet companies, in publishing houses, and in web based businesses in London and overseas.
