Program description

Digital Humanities

Digital humanities is an inter-disciplinary field of study that represents a bridge between the arts and humanities and information technology. It further stretches beyond academia, mainly through collaboration with the cultural heritage sector. This two-year master Program in digital humanities is suitable for individuals who want to work with technology to devise creative solutions in a range of humanities application areas at cultural heritage institutions, public agencies, international organizations and private companies. The program aims to build a general ability to understand and apply digital methods as well as create applications and practical solutions in working places, resorting to interdisciplinary approaches and cross-sectoral collaboration. This Program in digital humanities is closely linked to the research at Linnaeus University, its Digital Humanities Initiative as well as the institute, connected to a large number of international universities through the iSchools organization.
