Digital Humanities

Digital humanities integrates knowledge of the humanities with digital skills. A digital humanities scholar has a profound understanding of a world full of information and data, where some methodological expertise in programming, data processing and database management is necessary. In addition, experience in digital humanities offers important transferrable skills, such as teamwork, communication skills and information literacy, also essential for gathering and analyzing information. Students of digital humanities can intern or work in start-ups, state institutions, NGOs or private companies which draw on both IT competence and understanding of the humanities.

We offer a minor program for BA students in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. Our MA and PhD students can choose an optional module in Digital Humanities, which is also open to BA students.

Find out more about the Digital Humanities BA minor program and optional modules on the webpage of the Centre for Digital Humanities and Information Society.
