World class interdisciplinary research & education in the Digital Humanities fields
Next DH application

The next application deadline for the EPFL Master of Science in Digital Humanities is 15 April.

Our Mission

The Digital Humanities Institute (DHI) and the Digital Humanities Section (SoDH) were created to foster research and to offer strong educational programs in the growing fields of Digital Humanities. Our institute seeks to provide international leadership in digital humanities research and education. Our Master of Science in Digital Humanities is an example of this as it is a unique feature that very few schools offer around the globe.

The digital humanities apply the methodologies of data science, computer science and engineering to the fields of human and social sciences – from music to cultural heritage.
