Program Overview

The Certificate in Digital Humanities is an interdisciplinary graduate certificate drawing on courses from the English, History, and Modern Languages and Literatures departments.  Students pursuing the graduate certificate will take a minimum of three digital humanities-focused and/or digital methods courses (9 credit hours). All students pursuing the certificate will be required to take the DH practicum course (MLL 774).  Students may fulfill the additional 6 credits required for the certificate by choosing two other digital humanities or digital methods courses from a list of approved courses offerings.  Students may also petition to use courses outside of the approved course list to fulfill program requirements on an ad-hoc basis. The final requirement is the creation and approval of an online portfolio showcasing projects and research utilizing digital humanist methodologies.
