Digital Humanities Institute
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.
Application deadlines are 15 April and 15 December. This program teaches how to interpret and translate data from cultural heritage, historical archives, and social media to acquire and share a better understanding of the world.
