Digital Humanities Institute (DHI)
The Digital Humanities Institute (DHI) was 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.
