Master's Programme in Digital Humanities

We are in the midst of a digital revolution. New technologies mean new opportunities – but they also demand that we try to understand the roles of both humans and the technologies in the digital world. This is what experts in the humanities are good at. Get a degree in Digital Humanities and become part of shaping the future!

The Master’s programme in Digital Humanities falls at the intersection of digital technologies and the central domains of the humanities. The programme enables you to explore both themes and issues in the humanities as well as digital technology in relation to contemporary society, culture and research.

You receive training in computer-aided research methods and digitisation of texts and images. These skills can be applied for example when making cultural heritage material digitally accessible, at the same time as you will have the critical competence needed to ask the important questions.

Thus, the field of Digital Humanities concerns the investigation of themes in the humanities with the support of digital technologies, but also vice versa. We explore digital technologies from a traditional humanities perspective and problematise different approaches to new technology and the use thereof. You get to practise creating critical perspectives and thinking innovatively around the relationship between the humanities and the past, the present and the future. In digital humanities, you can work with everything from medieval texts to visual presentation of data.

What jobs can I get?
With a degree in Digital Humanities, you can work in research or in for example the cultural heritage, library or digitisation sectors, where you may work in projects requiring multidisciplinary cooperation. You will be able to use digital technologies to problematise and experiment with publication practices.

You will also be prepared to engage in various forms of knowledge production an dissemination of culture. Your competence will be attractive to employers in many occupational fields, and you will receive the training you need to participate in research and development work both nationally and internationally.
